Does anyone in knot world have a pattern for a rope climbing net made using traditional knots suitable for a Scout troop to make as a weekend project.

Hi !

May be this will give you the beginning of a trail...

Here are some llinks to possible knots : please not that they are just laid in a diagram-like form and not correctly "dressed". (Thanks Dan_Lehman for opening my eyes )

One word of warning ( seems evident afterwards, but  I know of such accidents to have happenned) : take great care that it is absolutely impossible for a child of any age to put his head inside a mesh if he can not very easily take it back. Either "small" meshing or ""large enough" meshing.
