158 [ Two vertical lines down the page, indicating strikeout]

~~this figure represents the knot with the~~

ends turned in but not tightened. If it

were made over a ball the strands would

lie flat as indicated, but ~~if~~^*when* pulled taut

~~each double bight~~ with nothing inside,

each double bight projects. There is ~~only~~

the thickness or diameter of 4 strands to

supply the diameter of the knot & 12

times the diameter of a strand multiplied by

[square root of 2] to supply the circumference. If the

diameter of a strand = 1, this is [as?]

4 to 17, whiere as for a perfect ball the

circumference should only be 12 or a little less

than twice the diameter of a strand is

~~needed to adjust the shape.~~.

*At the commencement of this doubling

each part should be lying exactly as shown

in fig 2. p 153, and the parts should be

doubled in regular succession as they lie.

If they refuse to disappear it is a sign the knot is very well

& firmly made.
