Fisherman's loop
Spierenstich Schlaufe.jpg

Use: The fisherman's loop makes a non-slip loop at the end of a rope.

How to tie:

This knot is the same as a fisherman's bend, except that instead of joining two ropes together, a single rope is doubled over and then joined to itself forming a loop.

Another way to tie it is to make a slip knot and then use the running end to tie an overhand knot around the standing end.
