Knots: Alpine Butterfly Loop

Alpine Butterfly

If the Bowline is “the King of Knots” this must be the “Queen”.  It is without question the best knot for making a non-slip loop in the bight of a rope, and is easy to make.

Make a bight with one hand and hold it, 2-make one twist, 3-make a second twist, 4-fold the end over to the loop at your hand B, 5-push the end through the loop by your hand, B and back up through the center loop, C.
