Choke using an overhand on a bight

End vs. Bight
Overhand vs. Figure 8 vs. Figure 9
Offset Overhand Bend (with OOB backup)
F8 on a bight
F8 bunny ears (double figure 8)
F9 on a bight
Clove Hitch, regular, triple, on a carabiner
Stone Knot (Stein Knot)
Munter or Belay Hitch / Munter-Mule
Friction Hitches: Prusik, Autobloc, Kleinheist, Bachman
tying rope to webbing
5. Basic Rigging
Wrap Two, Pull One - etc.

Sounds like a great idea Tom.
That would be awesome. I can't think of any other knots, but then again I'm a noob. I carry a "pamphlet" of knots in my backpack with pictures just incase I forget how to tie one. I don't have that many in mine though.
How much would they be? Can I pre-order
I think it's an awesome idea. A while ago I was kicking around the idea of posting a sticky thread that had many of the above knots, tied step-by-step.
I think your list is pretty comprehensive, and if you published it I'd for sure purchase one.
