Watch the knot draw itself or use your finger to tie and untie the knot. Its easy to see where the virtual rope goes in and out and around. (Something about a rabbit and a hole and a tree right? ) Zoom in on the knot to get a closer look or flip it around for another perspective. Use your finger to spin the knot and see how it looks from any angle in 3D! Each 3D knot has detailed reference information including tying pointers, strength and reliability, structural info, and Ashley reference numbers (ABoK) and occasionally the history behind the knot. The knots are arranged by both category (Boating, Climbing, Fishing, Scouting, etc) and type (Bend, Loop, Stopper, etc). If you find a knot you like or want to come back to later, add it to your Favorites list for quick reference. The complete list of knots can be found on our website:

Great app

I have books on tying knots but find this application to be better than any of them. The ability to rotate the view, so it’s more easily understood for us left-handers, plus speeding or slowing down the visuals, is fantastic. The ability to mark your favorites so you can come back to them it’s very nice.. I did not grow up learning to tie knots ( we didn’t learn that in my Brownie troop, LOL) so I really like the explanations for uses and other info for each knot. I have recently had the need to tie some knots for specific purposes, and this app showed me how. The price for such a terrific app is amazing.

Know Your Knots

Been using this one for years. It’s free and the animations are good. There’s about 150 knots and they are arranged into categories of use. It’s a good app that gets updated with new knots from time to time. They give a brief history of each knot and how it is commonly used. There are no ads and I wonder how they do this all for free. Anyway I thank the developers for an imminently useful knot primer. My only nit is that the iPhone version doesn’t update, so once a year I off load the app and reinstall. This gives me all the new knots.

Easily the best knot tying app in the App Store

I have had Knots 3-D for many years. Unlike most apps that tend to stagnate, Knots 3-D has continued to improve both in visualization technology and the number of knots it contains. I literally get excited when I see that there is an update in the App Store for this wonderful app. This is one app that I have no regret having purchased.
