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.
