The convenience of this method of making
is that it is easy to hold the bull
loop in position (p.39. fig 2.) while the with
the left hand while the right hand
finishes the knot.. This first loop should
not be made too large. It can be canted
into a horizontal position if this is
thought to facilitate matters. If fig 2.
can be fixed in the mind (it is a p with its tail, behind a b, behind)
then the rest is easy: front, behind,
front & twice behind. The end b may be secured to d.
If it is desired to make a "Running
" loop as ^i.e. a loop with the standing part running
through the high of the bowline, the
simplest plan is to ^* make a bowline
with a very small loop; to pull a
bight of the standing part through this,
and then to tighten the knot to the
extent considered desirable. the bight of
the standing part forms the running loop.
This loop is used for throwing over anything out of reach. (Burney 14.)
Two bowlines with bights inter-looped are
termed a Bowline Bend. ( Chambers It
is a bad ^& cumbersome way of bending hawsers ^& cables. (E.B. xxi.591.i.B.) but Dana
says it is the most usual one. [Vertical: cf VI.113. "Lagni????"]
