with ^Fig 1 ; do the same with with 1 round the
ends of 2 & 3 (fig.

knot with 2 round 3, passing the end of
2 through the bight of 1 & then through
its own bight^ (fig
2 3. p178) ; make a similar knot
with 3,passing its end (i) through the
bight of 1 ; (ii) through that of 2: & (iii)
through its own bight. ^ ( fig

bights & let them be equidistant from
one another. Pull the ends evenly
straight up from the knot while
humouring the latter close down to
the laid up part . ^ Finally push the knot up from below.
