Figure 8 On A Bite
Start with the end of the rope bent like the picture below to form a bite. When starting it’s nice to give yourself enough slack to be able to fully tie the knot.
(Note: You can form an overhand knot anywhere on the rope)
2. Take the bite of rope and bend it behind like the picture.
3. Next, take the bite and thread it through the loop that was formed like the image below.
4. Lastly, Pull the bite tight through the loop. Cinch down all strands and “clean” your knot.
(Note: Cleaning or dressing your knot is a term used to described that knot is tight, no strands are twisted or wrapped around each other, this ensures easy checking to make sure it is tied correctly.)
