Hey everybody .
Jason here .
Welcome to my channel focused on learning knots .
In today's video , we're gonna learn the Daisy Chain knot .
So let's head on into the work table and take a look .
The Daisy chain is a method of shortening a rope or cable while it's in use or for storage .
Truthfully , I believe there's better methods for storing a rope .
The Daisy chain is also called the Chain Senate and also the monkey braid .
It's an attractive macro style knot that allows you to make a braid out of a single strand of rope .
I typically use this when I've tied off a working line and then have a long tail end hanging down .
If I find that I have a long length of rope down on the ground , I often use a Daisy chain to shorten the rope , tidy it up and just make the area safer for when people are walking by .
So let's have a look at how to tie the Daisy chain knot first tie a slip knot by creating a loop and then passing a small bite through the loop .
If you're not familiar with the slip knot , I'm gonna add a link in the description from there , make another bite and pass it through the previous loop from there , make another bite and pass it through the previous loop .
Then keep repeating until you've reached your desired length .
Once you've reached your desired length , you can finish off the Daisy chain by passing the tail end through the final loop .
The Daisy chain looks great but the real benefit is when you go to untie it , you simply have to pass your tail end back through the final loop and then pull on the end and it'll simply untie on its own .
So there you have it , the Daisy chain knot .
