Picture of Figure 8 Knot With Loop/Bight
How to create a Figure 8 knot with a loop (bight). There are a number of guides and videos on Instructables and the web, but they were all fairly difficult to follow. This Instructable is designed to break the process into smaller steps and to make it easier to follow visually.
1. Paracord
2. Duct tape
3. Black marker (to darken part of the paracord to make it easier to follow the looping process)

Step 1: Loop Paracord

1. Use the marker to darken about 10 inches of the paracord.
2. Create loop in the paracord with the loop on the right.
3. Round the loop at the point where the black and orange meet.

Thank you! I tried to make it easy to do each step since some of the others were a bit difficult to pick up.
