so that cadb were a continuous cord,
this would be an ordinary way of
making a bowline, the part ad being
left slack to hang down in a loop
after the knot was tightened (see ii.p.[__])
In such a case the preliminary bull
loop is made by giving a bight of
[?] cord or rope a twist and
then holding it in position until the
knot is finished.
However the knot is made, inspection
of the figures on p.1. will show that
where as the reef knot consists of two
knot loops interlaced, this consists
of a bull & a lion loop. Both parts of
the lion loop come out on the same
side of the bight of the bull loop & do not cross one another, but
the parts of the bull loop ex vi termini
come out on the opposite sides of the bight
of the lion loop and cross one another
ex vi termini. In loose knots with large rope,
the free ends should be seecured to the standing
parts, as in
all nearly all similar cases.
