Figure Eight Knot

The Figure of Eight Knot is one of the easiest knots to learn. This stopper knot does not jam and is easy to undo. In this section, learn how to tie a Figure of Eight Knot.

Step 1:
Twist the rope to form a crossing turn or a loop. You can do this by bringing the working end under the standing part.

Step 2:
Bring the working end above the standing part.

Step 3:
Pass the working end through the crossing turn or loop that you made earlier.

Step 4:
Pull to tighten. The knot should be similar to the number 8, hence the name Figure 8.
