How am I to attach the tack of the asymmetric to the tack line?

Just got my boat and trying figure out the tack line for the spinnaker. The tack line’s bitter end starts in cockpit, then a frictionless ring at the tip on the sprit, then through a (temporary) loop on the pulpit, then back to luggage tag to sprit where the frictionless ring is attached. This gives me 2 to 1. My question is how am I to attach the tack of the asymmetric to the tack line. Should I have a soft shackle? Is the blue line strong enough to be the attachment? Thanks for the newbie advice.
