The crown knot, in and of itself it has very little use. So why did I go to all of the trouble of creating an instructional drawing and writing this post? The crown knot, along with the soon to be introduced wall knot, is the basis for a number of practical and decorative knots. I have shown the knot tied with three strands but it can be tied in any multiple number of strands. I find that three strands are ideal for learning this knot.
While not very exciting, the crown knot is an important step towards being able to tie a multitude of more complex knots. So take some time and learn this knot.
