Turk’s Head

Turk’s Heads are used for decoration. They can be tied around something in a tube shape or flattened into a coaster-like shape (pictured top right).

Monkey’s Fists are used when heaving a line. The knot makes the end of the line heavier which allows the line to be thrown farther and more accurately hit its target.
