the knot shown in figs 1 to 4; (6) the
reverse form of this knot.

of third line followed by text in square brackets]
[p. 34 follows here.]
Uses: As substitutes for the ordinary
overhand running knot. The running
part runs rather more steadily in the two-
fold form. For attaching fishing hooks:
see i. p70. Used especially when the loop,
once pulled tight, is intended to remain so, as in
the first stages of parcel tying.
Characteristics: There are 4 forms, two
from each form twofold knot ac-
cording as one end or the other is
turned in to form the loop. These 4 forms
are all shown above , viz, figs 1-5, 6, 8, &
9. Probably figs 5 & 6 illustrate the most
commonly used forms. These are all of
the blood knot class.
It is possible also to make a corresponding
number of quipu class twofold running knots,
but probably these are not ever made in-
tentionally. They can of course be resolved
into the corresponding blood ^ knot class forms,
