so on. Tighten the plait from time
to time. The result will be, not a
flat plait, but one resembling a tight
chain. (fig 7.)

methods of working it.

of all these ^tubular plaits is this: If a
rod be taken & a number of strands
by laid round it like the helical
threads of a screw or the strands used
in worming, and if then an equal num-
ber of strands are laid round the
rod in the reverse direction, crossing
the first set at right angles and
passing alternately over & under them
