Shroud Knot. (1)
Other names: Shroud Splice: English
To make: Take the two ropes to be joined:
unlay the end of each; put them end to end, &, supposing them
to be 3 strand ropes,
marry crutch the six
strands, i.e. lay them
up together as in fig 2. p214. Then
with the strands of a make a single
wall with the lay round b, and with those of b the
same round a. Pull the two walls to-
gether, seize the ends, or tease them out
lay worm the fibre in along the hollows of the
ropes, serving it, or otherwise dealing with
it. The figure represents 3 strand rope,
real ordinary shroud would have 4 strands. *
The method of making is the same in
Sometimes two Pigtails (p.165)
are used in place of the two original walls.
