Butterfly bend

Knot to join the ends of two ropes together / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The butterfly bend is a knot used to join the ends of two ropes together. It is the analogous bend form of the butterfly loop,[1] in that it is the butterfly loop with the loop cut.[2] The observation that the butterfly loop is secure enough to isolate a worn or damaged section of rope within the loop indicated that the bend form of the knot would be similarly secure.[3]
