Coach Whipping Plaits.
[Sidenote on right: Note: Burney (49)
describes as ordinary
flat 4 - strand plait
under this name.]
To make: An even number
of strands ^exceeding two must
should be used,
and four is
the [normal?] ^a convenient number.
^ p 166.[Deleted: There are many ways of
making the plait. One
way is as follows: The strands
being fixed conveniently as
in fig 2, take 1 & 3 in the
right hand & 2 & 4 in the
left & cross the former over
the latter (fig 3.) Then twist
the right hand strand of
each pair to the left over
the left hand one. (fig 4.)
Cross the left hand pair
(2 & 3) over the right hand
pair, changing hands. (fig 5.) Put the
upper of the overlying pair under the
upper of the underlying pair (2 under 3)]
