Anybody learned the ropes w/ SketchUp yet

Is it possible (I’m thinking yes) or does anyone know how to “draw” a pc.of rope w/ a knot tied in it? I haven’t tried yet & not even sure where to start.By draw I mean, drawn using basic SU tools (line, push/pull, free hand, erase etc) not an uploaded image or Photo matching or rendering & no plugin that makes it magically appear. If you can, pls share your wisdom. Thanks

draw a curve and use the follow-me tool, switch on "View > Toolbars… > Large ToolSet for doing this.

lots of ropes/knots here.
