What's the Use for Loops?

As the most versatile knot you can tie, a loop can function in any category of knot, including a stopper knot, hitch, part of a bend, and even as binding or decoration. A loop can be used as a hitch either by tying and then passing the loop over the end of an object, or by first passing the end around an object and then tying. Two interlocking loops can be used to fasten one rope to another, thereby making a reliable bend.
