Knot of the Month for April – The Ocean Plait

Knot of the Month: The Ocean Plait

Use this knot to make placemats, hotpads and also for Welcome mats and other uses. Nautical uses for these were as padding (Thump mats) to protect the deck from damage from spars and other heavy objects. If you have an old main sheet or other long length of old rope this is a good way to use it up.
