This is not the first video on this topic, but it is probably the most thorough. The Siberian hitch, or 'Evenk knot' is now very popular with people learning bushcraft, but all the instructions I have seen for it treat it as a unique and mysterious knot created by a magical arm movement. In fact it is quite a conventional knot - a slipped figure of eight, with a captured standing end. Here I go through the technique of tying one, and break down the stages into many constituent parts. People familiar with knots with know most of what I say already, and perhaps could watch the video from about 6.26 if they just want to see the technique for this specific knot.

I may do more knot videos. I haven't decided yet.
