Wood Badge is a premier training course for Boy Scouts of America, focusing on leadership skills. The Wood Badge "woggle" is the traditional neckerchief slide of Wood Badge Scouters, and it is created by each Scouter on the first day of Wood Badge training. The woggle is tied with a Turk's head knot, with no visible beginning or end. It symbolises continuity of friendship and service.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Place the end of the braid between the thumb and index finger of your left hand, palm facing toward you. Wrap the braid around the back of the first three fingers of the left hand, tucking the cord between your ring finger and pinky finger.

  2. 2

    Pull the braid up and cross it over the end that's between your thumb and index finger. Pull the braid around the back of your hand again, pulling the braid through your ring finger and pinky finger and positioning the new loop to the left of the first loop. Thread the cord over the first loop, under your thumb and index finger.

  3. 3

    Rotate your hand so your palm faces you. Move the braid on the left side over the braid on the right side. Pass the end of the braid through the space between the cords, under the left-hand braid and up through the space. Pass the braid through the hole again, this time passing under the braid and up through the hole, working from the right side.

  4. 4

    Rotate your hand again so your palm is facing you. Thread the braid two more times as in Step 3. When finished, you have three parallel strands of braid. Adjust the length of the woggle as needed so there is enough cord to complete the slide. The knot threads should end where they began so the circle is continuous. Hide the ends of the braid by tucking them inside the knot. You can tighten the knot by slowly working the ends of the braid through the knot.
