Guylines Only

  1. I love this design very much. I’m going to try teaching it to the scouts to use at summer camp. We always have our swimsuits draped over everything. My question: how are the triangles attached to the guy lines? They look like they might be clove hitches or round turns.

    1. They’re clove hitches, which can be used to optimally position the triangles. I don’t see a simple roundturn by itself providing the required gripping effect to keep the triangles stable.
