Making a Dilly Bag line.


Basically a Dilly bag line is intended to be used to hang thing on – without pegs.
Two ropes are tied onto something vertical [tree, post that type of thing] with  the basic knots of clove hitch knot or a round turn and two half hitches.
These two ropes are then twisted over each other until the ropes reach the other vertical thing to tie the ropes off onto. Again a tree or post.
Tied off again with a round turn and two half hitches.
To hang things from the ropes just separate an area along the twisted ropes and slip the thing to hang through closing the rope after the item will happen automatically – unless the ropes are not twisted enough.  If this is the case undo and start twisting the ropes again.
