I wonder why the Span Loop is not more widely known? I only recently discovered this knot and found it to be an extremely useful knot to know. The wonderful thing about the Span Loop Knot is that it is so easy to tie. The other great feature about the Span Loop is that it is also extremely easy to untie, even when it has been heavily loaded.

I am not sure how the Span Loop compares in security over the much loved Alpine Butterfly Loop, but I have to say that the Span Loop makes a very good general purpose loop knot on the bight of a rope. If you have experience of both the Span Loop and the Alpine Butterfly, then please do let me know your finding in the comments below.
