How to Tie a Knot post will cover what you need to know for 2 of the most popular knots:
Everyone can picture this knot. The figure-eight knot can be used in a couple of ways while camping.
It’s mostly used as a stopper knot at the end of a rope under load, preventing it slipping through a device. For example, rock climbers sometimes use figure-eights to tie off rope ends to prevent them sliding through a belay device.
The figure-eight is also the foundation of a number of more complex knots, like the figure-eight loop which is useful when you need to tie a loop in the middle of a section of rope, rather than at the end.
To make a figure-eight loop, double your section of rope back on itself (forming a bight) and tie the figure-eight as normal using the doubled rope to make a strong loop.
