    Default The Daisy Chain Hitch

    My favourite rigging knot, hands down. Anyone else ever use this?

    I like it, thanks! I use the daisy chain on my lanyard all the time and a similar hitch for tying the horse to a hitch rail. Just never thought of trying it as a rigging hitch.

    The old timer that showed me that knot called it a dragon knot.

    That's Great! Easy finish, and looks secure. I'll have to put that one in my book of tricks.

    Pretty sweet. I'll give it a whirl tomorrow. Of course I'll probably be down in the basement tying it 5000 times tonight just so it looks natural to me by morning.

    I wonder if that's like a dragging bowline?
