    if you are talking about the number of times you loop the line to tie off, then the second knot is to keep the first knot from comming apart
    the first loop on most knots or all provably will tie off the line for tension, the second will aid the first but mainly will prevent the first knot from coming apart

    The knot strength of any string is lower than the straight pull strength. The second loop help to prevent the knot from failing due to a load on the sting exceeding its holding power.
