Uses: To afford a grip to the hands
or feet without unlaying a rope or
knotting it. Also as an ornamental knot.
Cf p. 152 ante.

Characteristics. An endless^or roll, A 3 straw
plait on 1 cord ^end to end of the form S[subscript 3] 5b/10c or
S[subscript 3] 7b/14c on p235. It might be of
any form on 1 cord in S[subscript 3], but it is
better not to make too many bights,
as fatness, produced by manifolding,
is the end aimed at. Any form of any
endless plait on 1 cord can be put on
a rope by equally simple methods. It
is not necessary to use ^a single line,
but it is necessary to make as many
bights (& no more) as shall correspond
to a plait on ^ the same number of endless lines as lines are to be used. an endless single line, as
(See illustration on pp 230 ff.) The knack of
getting the knot quite tight depends on
practice, but it will always be necessary
to use dry tqine or, and by preference, twine
that has never been wet. Water may be used to
shrink on the tight knot.
