Common Nylon Rope Knots
One of the most common general-purpose stopper knots, figure eight has come to replace the overhand knot in many applications. This knot would be used to mark the end of the rope so it doesn’t get lost. It’s easy enough for beginners, and yet impressively strong and reliable.
A Slip Knot
The half-hitch is used to attach a rope to a stationary object, such as a hitching post. The half hitch is usually used in conjunction with other knots or additional half hitches which in turn create other more stable knots. When there are multiple half hitches in succession, these create knots with their own name. Some examples of this are two half hitches, the clove hitch, and the cow hitch.
