Figure Of Eight Knot

(Flemish Knot, Savoy Knot)

Figure of Eight Knot

A useful “Stop” knot to temporarily bulk out the end of a rope or cord, the finished knot looks like its name. It is superior to using a Thumb Knot, because it does not jam so easily.

Tip: The Figure of Eight is useful to temporarily stop the ends of a rope fraying, before it is whipped.
