Tying a Bowline on a Bight Knot

A BIGHT is a loop of rope. It is the middle part of the rope as opposed to the ends.

Sometimes you need to make a solid loop in a line and can't access the ends. A Bowline on a bight makes a couple of loops that don't slide. It can be used to attach something on the middle of a line. It does not tighten or slide around.

It starts off like a regular bowline knot but when the loop come out it goes down around the bottom loop and gets pulled up over the knot to the top.


I have some pages about materials used in ropemaking also trade names of ropes. So far I have nylon and polypropylene
