The miller’s knot is sim­ple and el­e­gant. It is a fric­tion knot, used to tie bags or sacks shut that will need to be re-opened. Take just 30 sec­onds to learn to tie this knot and we bet you’ll start us­ing it ev­ery day.

When you might use it:

• Clos­ing the top of a sack

(of flour, dog food, pot­ting soil) • Se­cur­ing a rolled-up sleep­ing bag,

foam mat, car­pet or towel • Bundling items such as pen­cils,

sticks, flow­ers or herbs
