To make: Tie a twofold half knot as
in fig 1, p 1. Then tie a second as shown
in fig 1 supra. The two twofolds must be
similar or a Twofold Reef (p 59 supra )
Uses: p 59.
Characteristics: An extended granny knot.

winding process of grannies
(see 1. 245) the knot tends to take the
form shown in fig 2. The strain may

the reef twofold in that the latter does
not tend to change its form. ^

fectly safe knot
, and if b is taken outside
the bight, prettier than the reef twofold
