How to Tie the Matthew Walker Knot
The photo above shows a sailor’s whisk that has been tied using the Matthew Walker Knot. When I first learnt to tie the Matthew Walker knot, I found it very difficult to tie. However, over time I have managed to perfect this little knot. The main thing to remember when tying the Matthew Walker knot, is to gently go along and tighten each turn, then go back and do it again.
A similar looking knot to the Matthew Walker is the Diamond Sennit Knot, which I personally think is a little easier to tie.
