In this tutorial I will demonstrate how to make a simple net using consecutive knots to create a mesh of cordage using a shuttle or netting needle (see my video on making your own netting needle of natural material from scratch on my channel

Nets are very useful by their ability to catch larger objects and let fluid, or smaller objects to pass through based on the size of the mesh. Many modern uses are include: cargo nets, cricket nets (the sport), or nets used in sporting goals in games such as soccer, basketball, Bossaball and ice hockey. A net also separates opponents in various net sports such as volleyball, tennis, badminton, and table tennis. Many primitive or aboriginal uses include: fishing nets, butterfly or insect-catching nets, bird/animal (hunting/trapping) netting, and netting for building shelters or enhancing camouflage, by tangling foliage and other debris within the mesh.
