Uses: The Chinese who showed me this
knot said it was sometimes worn
by Chinese as a button (with a loop)
on their caps, and called it by the
name here given. As an ornamental
knot, button or
rope end knotfor small cord it
might also be used.
Characteristics: Comparison of the
figures on pp. 78 and 94 show this
knot to be a
form of modification of the Carrick Bend.
If the blue parts were joined where the
ring is drawn round them and the
violet parts similarly joined as indi-
cated in the figure on p 94, the
loop between the rings were cut away.
As it is, with the ends [?in gained?] joined
under the loop, it is a knot of 15
crossings, instead of 8 only (p. 78.)
