How to tie a Figure Eight Knot (figure 8 knot)

In this graphic tutorial, we will show you how to tie a Figure Eight Knot. The figure-eight knot or figure-of-eight knot is a type of stopper knot. It is very important in both sailing and rock climbing as a method of stopping ropes from running out of retaining devices. Like the overhand knot, which will jam under strain, often requiring the rope to be cut, the figure-of-eight will also jam, but is usually more easily undone than the overhand knot.
