How to Tie a Surgeon’s Knot

The Surgeon’s Knot was developed as it is named, by surgeons. They found this knot to be particularly useful in holding together thread that had become slippery from blood and tissue. The extra ‘over and under’ pass holds the thread together while the final knot loop is being tied. I decided to do a quick article on this knot around Thanksgiving because it is a great knot to use on meat with butcher string. The next time you tie up a bird or roast before cooking, give this knot a shot.
