HOW TO TIE KNOTS – STEVEDORE KNOT

The Stevedore knot is a stopper knot that’s basically a Figure of Eight Knot with a couple of extra turns to give it more volume. This knot thanks it’s name to the dockworkers (Stevedores) using it as a stopper knot. A Stevedore’s main task was to load and unload ships, for this blocks were used to pull cargo onto a ship. The Stevedore Knot would be tied at the end of a line used for loading to prevent the line from slipping though the blocks, because it’s a bulky knot that’s quick and easy to tie.
