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
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.
