Introduction: Perfection Loop

The Perfection Loop (a.k.a. Angler's Loop) makes a very secure knot.

It should be used as a permanent knot. It jams when pulled tight and can be difficult to untie.

In this instructable I will show two methods of tying this knot.

Step 1: Method # 1

Bring working end (WE) under the standing end forming a bight.

Step 2:

Bring WE over the standing end forming a loop.

Step 3:

Bring WE under the bight.

Step 4:

Bring WE back over the bight.

Step 5:

Bring the loop (step 2) over the WE and down through the bight.

Step 6:


Step 7: Method # 2

Wrap cord three times around dowel (fingers).

Step 8:

Bring first turn under the other two.

Step 9:

Bring the next turn over, under the other two turns.

Step 10:

Remove knot from dowel and tighten.
