List of binding knots

A binding knot is a knot that may be used to keep an object or multiple loose objects together, using a string or a rope that passes at least once around them. There are various binding knots, divided into two types. Friction knots are held in place by the friction between the windings of line. Knotted-ends knots are held in place by the two ends of the line being knotted together.

Whipping and seizing serve a similar function to binding knots, but are classified differently since they contain many turns, like a lashing.

This is a list of binding knots.
