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.
