In order to eliminate the animated image for which I had none for the square lashing, I used subst: to insert of the code from that template and then AI commented out the portion dealing with the animated image. Perhaps someone could update the template to recognize if an animated image is specified only insert it at that time. -->

Use a square lashing for binding together two poles that are in contact with each other and cross each other at any angle from 45 degrees to 90 degrees.


Required for


Instructions
  1. Start by crossing the two sticks or dowels at perpendicular or 90 degree angles.
  2. Make a Clove hitch on the vertical stick or dowel near the point where the two sticks cross. This fastens the rope to the stick.
  3. Weave the rope under and over the crossed sticks alternately. To do this, run the rope over the horizontal bar, around behind the vertical bar, then back over the face of the horizontal bar on the left. Tighten snugly, then bring the rope behind the vertical bar and up the right front side of the horizontal bar. Repeat this three or four times, keeping the rope tight.
  4. When you have finished weaving the lashing, then "FRAP" it by wrapping the rope between the poles (in front of the back stick and in back of the front stick), pulling tightly. This tightens the connected poles.
  5. Finish your lashing with another Clove hitch.

Notes
  • The lashing gets is name from the fact that the wrapping turns are at 90 degrees—or "square"— to the poles.
  • Whilte creating a square lashing, keep your first clove hitch in place by twisting the running end of the rope around the standing part a few times.
