It is interesting that additional knots required in stages past Scoutcraft Skills Stage 4 are lashings (Stage 5: square, diagonal, tripod and shear) and splicing (Scoutcraft Skills Stage 8: backsplice, short splice, eye splice), which one could argue are not knots at all, but rather applications of knots. This really shows the importance of these fundamental knots. Higher stages may require more complex projects (monkey bridge, tower, bridge, camp gateway), but largely rely on the knots potentially taught to Cub Scouts or early stage Scouts.
