The Colors and Skill Levels:

1.  Pink - Rope issued; learn Lark's Head

2.    Yellow - All First Class Knots (they are in your Scout Handbook). Square Knot, Half Hitch, Two Half Hitches, Taut-line Hitch, Clove Hitch, Timber Hitch, and Bowline.

4.    Purple - Advanced Knotmaster - Can teach all knots plus; End or Back Splice, Eye Splice, Short Splice, plus all added knots.

To wear your rope is an honor. Your rope must never be used inappropriately. NEVER - use your rope to tie or hit another person, swing your rope in the air, or use it in any dangerous manner. Failure to follow these rules will result in the return to the first level or loss of your privilege to wear the rope of the Knotmasters.

Make sure to always have your rope handy, and don’t misplace it.  Replacements cost $0.50, and you have to start back at the beginning.
