Figure Eight Loop

The Figure Eight Loop is an easy to tie knot to quickly put a loop at the end of a line. The Figure Eight Loop is also known as a Flemish Loop and is functionally the same as a Figure Eight Follow Through. Figure Eight Loop is like a Figure Eight but tied using a loop (bight) instead of a single rope.
