To make: Take a piece of rope longer
than the circumference of the intended
grommet to the extent convenient for half
knotting & tucking in the ends of the strands
as in a long splice. (p.163) See fig 1.
Unlay one strand e.g. no 2. (fig 2) and
unlay the ^both ends of 1 & 3 so far as they
exceed the circumference of the grommet
to be made. These ^four unlaid ends may
be stopped together if desired. At about
one third of the circumference from the
supposed stop, and ^e.g. at the place marked
with the two red crosses in fig 2, lay up 2
again, leaving the surplus ends out for
tying (fig 3.) ^In passing the ends of 1 & 2 be guided by fig 2 & don't not
bring 2 through between the four ends.

Now unlay 3 (fig 4) and
proceed to relay it in the same way, be-
ginning at the point marked with
blue crosses in fig 4, which is about

from the point where 2 began to be
re-laid. When 3 is re-laid the appearance
will be as in fig 5. Finish off as in
