I'm curious also. Why would you use a bowline over a clove hitch. They are not even close relatives.
Yeah - they are functionally different. Let me explain. And I'll add that when I say "knots" below I also mean hitches.

So, I'll admit I'm a little confused about the purpose of this thread:

* it's in the beginners forum;
* beginners in a new area are sometimes overwhelmed with what needs to be learned;
* the subject Three knots you have to know implies everything else is not strictly necessary to know

So I went down the path of imagining which knots I could manage to do without. The clove hitch is one of them. That's all. Doing without it doesn't make things easier - but I could manage.

So what was the purpose of the thread?

Edit: Ah - I didn't follow the link in the original post. Purpose of the thread is to promote the book?
