The Figure 8
September 15, 2016

This is a “stopper knot” to use at the end of a rope so that it cannot slip out of position.

How to tie

  • Pass the working end of the rope under the standing line to form a loop.
  • Now pass the working end back over the standing line, and pull it up through the loop
  • Pull the knot tight, as close to the end of the rope as possible.  You will be able to feel that you have created a shape like the number 8.
