The Friendship Knot

This knot is often used by Scouts to secure the neckerchiefs, instead of a woggle - either because they've lost it - or because they're worried they might. It can also be tied in the points of a necker (very small) if a woggle is being worn.

The linking of the two sides of the necker represent the bond of friendship - both sides of the knot collapse to nothing if they are disentangled.

   
(1) First cross the two ends of the neckers  (3) Now pass the other end behind the bight  Finished friendship knot - looks smarter in a Halved necker, and if you fold the bights
   
(2) Then make a bight with the end that went over, and tuck it back under the other end  (4) Finally tuck the end down the bight
