In such cases a ring fitting
fairly close round the thong or lash,
& moved up as the work proceed
would be a convenient substitute for
the bung, and a little practice
makes pins quite unnecessary.
When once the principle has been
grasped all that is necessary
is to take an even no (N) of cords:
consider then each couple of ad-
jacent cords a pair; twist N/2
pairs consecutively in the same
direction, one twist to each pair;
then split the pairs to form new
ones, twist in reverse direction N/2
pairs; split again & twist in origi-
nal direction & so on.
Ordinary "cross-pointing" of a
large rope can be done in this way.
Cf V.25.ff. Grecian Splice & cf fig 3. (v.33) which
however could not be thus made, since the
strands or faces are free only at one end.)
