Figure-eight Loop

Tie-in knots or rope up knots are used to tie into the end or somewhere into the middle of a rope.

The most popular tie-in knot is the Figure-eight Loop. Some call it Flemish Loop, others say Figure-eight on a bight.
This knot is a good compromise between fast to tie and easy to untie.

If your rope is old and already fat and fuzzy, you should better make a Bowline on a Bight.

There are two different techniques to make the Figure-eight Loop:
1. the follow-through method
.. to tie directly into a harness
2. the standard method
