the blue to the violet
desired to double the knot, on reaching
of the violet, continue under
the loop & work along the
blue same lines
again until the end
of the violet is again reached. this makes a much more attractive knot. Or, on going round the
second time, cross under wherever the
line being followed crosses over and
vice versa. The result of this process is a very
intricate [Deleted diagram] knot, and one
difficult to make without
arrangement of upright pins or
some such apparatus.

off by unlaying the short end and
it the strands round the standing part. They
are prettier when not fully tightened.
