an even no. of C. not divisible by 4 by * ^cutting*

joining the nearest sides of * ^ two* opposite

bights. (In the case of __2b__ 2c an i. twist

results.) Also in those even C. knots

divisible by 4, an i.k. on (2+1) = 3z

by the same process, and on (2+N)z~~for every pair~~ when N pairs of opposite

bights are joined in such knots.

With regard to the formation of the

reef knot, it may also be laid down

that “ An [i?].k. may be formed with

the same no. of C. on 1z. from every

knot in S2 (except __2b__ 2c) with an even

no.of C. not divisible by 4 by ~~joining~~

cutting 4 adjacent bights, joining 2

adjacent parts of adjacent bights, joining

an odd to an odd & and even to an even

part (in the same __1__ 2 circ. as the twist)

& joining the ~~remaining~~* ^2 outside* parts on either side

of the uncut bight or bights.

For example, take S2
