Typical use Joining two ropes of similar size


The double figure eight bend is a strong bend, used for joining two ropes of similar sizes. To make it, first tie a loose figure eight in the end of one of the ropes, then retrace it, starting from the working end, using the second rope. This bend lays flat and does not slip easily.
