Figure of Eight Knot
(Flemish Knot, Savoy Knot)
Animated Figure of Eight
  • 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.
