The Sailor's Eye Splice 

(135kb could take a few seconds to down load)
To Make an Eye Splice: form the eye and spread the strands away from you fanwise, placing them against the rope where it is to be entered. Untwist the rope one turn, open the top or center bight with a small fid, and stick the center strand under the next bight to the left in the same direction and lastly stick the right strand, from right to left, under the remaining bight. After this, tuck all stands once more, over one and under one. Trim the ends at a length equal to one diameter of rope.
