In actual netting the part forming the
lower bight of the S goes round the mesh
pin, and a is represented by a length
of twine wound round the netting needle.

stick with piece of
wood with a deep notch in each end
will serve as a needle. The first
line meshes are put on a band of string

by some slovenly makeshift) can be learnt
