When it comes to tying knots, I don't actually know much. I'm looking for a type of know that will make a loop around something and have the excess coming off fairly central. This picture shows what I mean, with the red being the string.

I want to learn a knot for tying bow strings, so if anyone could help, I'd be grateful.

I'm an expert when it comes to coarse fishing knots, but that's about it I'm afraid!

Go to a good book store.They have books on knots,or can get you one.
Books are always a good resource, but for knots I've found the most useful information on the internet. Especially for the more complex knots animated diagrams can be a lot easier to follow than the static ones you will find in a book.

A "bowstring knot" usually is a flemish twist....not really a knot so much as a way to twist strands of "line" into a string with loops on either end....google for how to tie flemish twist bowstring.....uses a jig...easy once learn how. Scott

thanks, bbshooter, that's just the one I need.

This site has better instructions though (just in case anyone else wants to learn this knot)
http://www.faqs.org/...tring-Knot.html
Is the middle picture right? I tried it twice and ended up with a loose end that just pulled through the knot losing the loop.

I found my problem. If the loops don't stack as shown it resolves into a simple overhand knot with end poked through making a loop.
