Carry Bottle with Any Jug Knot Handle Carry Bottle with Any Jug Knot Handle
Attach a JUG KNOT around a water bottle, soda bottle or aluminum bottle to make a secure carrying strap.
Reuse any container in a reusable water bottle by adding a suitable carrying strap. This Training Table, as the name implies, will illustrate the attachment of a JUG node intended to be correctly secured around the neck of a container.
With the amount of lanyard and knowledge of this node, you can add a handle, lanyard or carabiner ring to any of your favorite drinks to carry on the go.
It works perfectly for disposable water bottles, and who knows, when you add a colored cord to your old flat clean water bottle, you know you’ll tend to refill and reuse. (See pictures 4 and 5 below)
In addition to plastic beverage bottles, such as pop, water and sports drinks, you can turn robust aluminum beer bottles into a canteen with a backpack.
Teachers! Did you use this in class? Add a Teacher Note to share how it’s included in your lesson.
Step 1: Getting started
Cord size is important. Select a small medium weight cable similar to the one shown here. A general purpose camping cable that is sold in most sports products. (shoelaces may also work)
Do not use a heavy cord or rope because the larger diameter will not be trapped under the relatively small lip above the bottleneck and the bottle will fall.
In addition, the smaller cord fits tight on itself and does not accidentally loosen.
Step 2: Create a Bight
A ‘JUG KNOT’ binding is shown in the next step. The basic step is to add a carrying strap. Also, the extra port you may want to add is for trussing fancy bottles.
Pitcher KNOT Step 1
Creates a “Bight” at the center of the cord length. Bight is a term used for a loop or twist in a rope. In this case, the main Bight on this node is highlighted with a white marker. These steps make it easier to follow the path.
The flowing ends of the cable must be of equal length.
Step 3: Pull down Bight Down
Pull the Bight DOWN, which forms the Two Cycles.
Step 4: Skip Cycles
Right Loop CROSS ON LEFT LOOP.
Step 5: Pass Bight Under Cycle 1
Take Ana Bight and run under the Loop on the left.
Step 6: Knit Bight
RIGHT TO ROAD OVER the section of the Right Loop and UNDER the section of the left Loop.
Step 7: Expand Bight
Extend the Bight OVER the outer part of the Right Loop.
Step 8: Flip Right Rear Loop
In these two steps, additional colored identification points were added to the loops to track their travels.
Right Loop * The yellow cursor is “FLIPPED behind the node button and ends at the far left side of the node.
Step 9: Turn Cycle 2 Front
Raise the green marker (formerly used in the left loop) and pull it down and to the right; FLIPPING IT IN FRONT OF Node.
Note that the blue portion of this loop will pass outside the yellow portion of the first loop.
Step 10: Remove the Slack
Note where the blue, green, and yellow markings end.
Start removing the clearance in the rings by pulling the original main Bight (right white marker on the top right) and the two free-standing ends at the bottom.
the bottle neck will pass the knot right through the middle.
Step 11: Tighten the Node
After removing the slack, insert the bottle neck and tighten.
The knot should look like this before sliding it onto the bottle.
Step 12: Secure Bottle to Neck
This is the finished knot shown on the neck of the various containers.
The loop end and the two free-standing ends can be interconnected to form a carrying arm. (The last picture below)
Step 13: Aluminum Bottle Water Bottle
The next few steps illustrate the properties of an aluminum beer bottle that was re-intended as a water bottle canteen. It is one of the many containers that can be reused as camping water bottles.
The bottle was lightly sanded, masked and then painted with a “hammered finished” paint to create an interesting surface texture.
Step 14: Tied Mushroom Stopper
For your aluminum water bottle, use a wine bottle made like stopper Cork.
Note: Use a cork removed from the wine bottle before passing through the lower end of the corkscrew. (A hole in the cork will leak completely.) Use the uncoiled end of the cork in the water bottle.
Make a hole in the edges of the fungus. Route the cable through the hole into the center of the cord. Use the mushroom as the main Bight. and Connect the Jug knot as shown in the initial steps.
The cork is now attached to the bottle and does not disappear or fall to the ground.
A Carabiner clip passes through the other cord end to attach the water bottle to your strap or package.
Step 15: Trusted for Transportation
This is another hanging method to transport your aluminum bottle canteen. A Jug knot is traditionally tied around the neck.
However, the flowing ends of the knot are pulled down towards the bottom of the bottle. A Barrel Node connects 3/4 down the side of the bottle. A square knot is connected under the knot to hold the two flowing ends towards the sides of the bottle.
I like the look of the accent colored cord passing by the sides of the bottle and the bottle hanging upside down from the strap. Adds uniqueness.
In the last picture there is another cage change.
Step 16: Advanced
Below is a bottle with some additional trussing. You can be as creative as you want. Everything starts with a reusable cap and Jug Knot (and enough cord).
Indoor Lighting Competition
BSA Troop 45 (Oxford, MS) secures a water bottle for walking using the two attached methods. Both methods use 6 feet 1/8 inch diameter rope. (6 feet length keeps the rope very convenient and useful. For knot tying application, the rope must be at least 6 feet, less length makes it difficult to understand the use of knots).
1) Ancient Egyptian Jug Knot Button – a bead has been added for embellishment (after knot is still loose, thread the bead thread with one of the loose ends and slide it up and down. Closed loop). The compression strap can be adjusted with double fishing knot (or inner figure eight).
2) Bottle Hanger – A teaching tool used to tie and learn the nodes used by each node.
I thank you for clear, easy-to-follow, precise instructions. The idea of marking the bibliography made it a very simple node to tie. If there were any ratings that went above 5, I would give them to you no matter how much. Keep working. To summarize what you wrote, PERFECT JOB !!!!!
I grew up saying this knot Anga-gah-sec-agnute (sp?) … I’m not sure if my grandfather wrote the name or it was the Scandinavian name. He also said the Vikings would use it to tie a line to “spirits” and other drinks, and then throw them into the sea to keep them cold.
Has anyone heard this, or was I a victim of childhood shepherd?
I’m using it on my key chain right now.
I didn’t hear that, but if the Vikings kept their water / spirit in glass or ceramic bottles, it would be VERY possible for them to do so. I’m not sure if he’s gonna use some kind of animal bladder. I was doing this (hanging my water bottle on board) when I was on an expedition. I organize 5-day ski trips on the outskirts of North Carolina. To keep it cool, I’ll often use a carbine to tie it to the hardware and drag it with me. The sound is not much colder than the air, but if I put my water with me in my cockpit, it’s still hotter than the sound. The bath deck on the kayak deck is as hot as the water. In the ocean where the Vikings will sail, even in hot waters, the ocean water becomes very cold and keeps delicious drinks cool.
Most of the time, in the old days, containers made of animal bladders were covered with insect shells or a natural waterproofing material, such as a tree extract or gum. This sealed the bottles. Watering them, (sp), did not prevent an off taste. The coating also hardens them and can be suspended by distortion.
I went to half a dozen other sources and was the first to explain this node in a clear and easy to follow way. Most sources fail where you start to pass cycles, but you’ve done an excellent job of explaining these steps. Kudos to you; Keep working well.
I love cork stopper. How did you cut the hole in the synthetic mushroom so that it looked so beautiful and clean? I was thinking about making a hole, but it looks like it looks miserable. Besides, where did you get a solid white mushroom? All the synthetic corks I’ve seen in wine bottles are printed with grapes or something.
I wanted to do a tutorial and finally decided on this little macrame bracelet. It is based on the knotted bracelets you see in tourist shops. It is very easy to do and you can design it to suit your style, depending on the beads and beads you choose. They also offer great gifts due to the adjustable length of the sliding buckle.
As long as the bead holes are large enough to accommodate two cords, almost any type of cords and cords work. Only one node is used along a simple square node. The sliding buckle is as simple as finishing, and the whole project can do what you want in part of American Idol or the TV.
You’ll need a few simple things:
- 4 meter cable (I used C-Lon Tex 400 for this demo)
- 8 or more beads depending on the length of the bracelet
- 2 small beads for rockers
- 3 straight pins
- Needle tip for finishing needle (has round ballpoint tip)
- Needle Tip Jewelry Pliers (Optional)
1)Cut the 2-piece strap up to 24,, hold it together and clip about 8 clipboard boards from one end. These will be fill cables. I use a shade of lavender for my stuffing cords.
Cut a piece of cord about 2 meters long. This knot will become ropes. Normally I use the same color cable for both fill and knot cords, but for this demo only, I use a dark purple shade for knot cords. Locate the center of the knot cord, slide it under the filler cables and secure it to the foamcore panel. We will now start to work with square knots with knot cords on the filler cables.
2) I use the right hand, so I usually start with the cable on the right side of the filler cables. Place the fill cords horizontally on the right to form a ring on the right. Take the cable on the left and place it on the horizontal cable, then lift it up under the cables and with the ring on the right. Pull out both knot cables and tighten. This is 1/2 of the square node.
3) Repeat step 2, but take the left cord and place it horizontally on the filler cables that form a loop on the left. Take the right cord and place it on the horizontal cord, then turn it under all the cables and top to left. Pull out both knot cables and tighten. You just made a full-frame knot.
4) After each 3 to 5 square knots, continue to make square knots and place a bead on the filler cables. The number of nodes depends on the size of the cord, the size of the beads, and the fact that many nodes look nice to you. Continue this pattern to the desired length. Note that the sliding clamp will add approximately ″ add.
When you’re done, thread a knot of thread into your needle and sew it to the center as far as possible. If you have problems, use a pair of jewelery pliers to pull your needle. If you find that your knots are too tight and you cannot thread the entire cord, remove the 3-ply cord and sew each thread separately. After properly sewing both knot cables, cut off any excess.
5) Then we make the buckle. Circle your work and hold it together by loosely tying it with a small amount of cord close to both sides of the nodes (I used orange). Foamcore pin bracelet.
Cut a strap about 12 ″ in length. Just like you did in step 1, slide this cord under the four cords and make square knots on all four cords for the 1/2 cord. Finish ends just like you would with a bracelet. When sewing these tips, avoid putting needles into the cords inserted into the needle.
6) Remove these temporary lanyard bits. There are 2 loose cables protruding from both ends of the buckle section. Hold 2 cords together and form a slip knot, place a bead on both cords, then create another slip knot to hold it in place. Cut the excess. Run and show everyone you know.
