Figure Eight Knot

 

The Figure Eight Knot also called the Savoy Knot, and the Flemish Knot, is a "stopper knot". It is made at the end of a single rope either to provide a stopgap to prevent the end from slipping through a fitting, or to provide a loop in the rope to which things may be attached. It is a very important knot in both sailing and rock climbing as a method of stopping ropes from running out of retaining devices.
