Cf VI. 127 ft. Having regard to
the many similar process there shown I
[Writing wraps around title: Chain Sennit.] doubt if this variation
on a tubular plait is worth
more than a note:
Figured (approximately) p. 205. fig 1.
To make: With the strands as
in fig 1.
p. 205, if it were desired to con- twist
tinue as Chain Sennit, twist 4 over 3,
6 over 4 [Deleted: & 3], 2 over [Deleted: 6, 3 & 4] 3 & 6,
3 over 4 (fig 2); then 5 over 3 (fig3); 2
over 4 & 5 (fig 4); 6 over 3 & 2 (fig 5); &
1 over 4, 5 & 6 (fig 6.) Then begin from
the inside again, twisting ^2 [Deleted: 6] over 1; then
[Deleted: 2] 6 over 2 [Deleted: 6], & so on, working to the out-
side. The process is easier than would appear
from the description.
Uses: p 211.
Characteristics: ^Pulled into a cord it
Much the same
as English Sennit, but
thicker in somewhat
proportion to its breadth, &
resembl[Deleted: ing]es a chain for which reason,
in default of a better name, the writer
calls it as above, believing it to be
an original method. Any ^even number of
strands may be used. Cf also v. 165,
which however is a different plait.
