Characteristics: Easier to undo than
an ordinary weaver. It is doubtful
whether it is more secure; in fact
it is probably less so. When it is
used for bending cord to big rope
as described (p. 55) the remarks on
pp 35-7 should be read apply, except
that instead of an overhand running
knot, a twofold running knot (i. 59.) is
liable to be formed. Probably there is
no better knot for bending ^attaching small cord
to a bight of big rope than the common
overhand running knot, with or without
a check. (i.55,61.) Of course the part
of the small cord to be strained should
be running when the unchecked form
is used. If any kind of single or
double sheetbend (weaver) is used, it
should be so formed as to be convertible
into such a running knot. (pp 35-7.) In
other words, in the figure on p 55 (for 54) the
strain should be on a & c should be of
a fair length.
