Trick: to tie a knot on a handkerchief
or piece of string of which both ends
in without letting them go.
First fold the arms; then pick
up the ends of the string &C. - one
in one (folded) hand, & the other in
the other. Separate the hands &
an overhand will form on the
string &c. (Children's Encyclopaedia.
Pulling string (or handkerchief) through leg.
(Trick.) Pass string below knee hori-
zontally round to back by L & R, &, in-
stead of crossing the parts behind, bring
each part 1/2 round and back by itself, hitching
one round the other behind knee. Knot
ends in front. Then pull by grasping
the parts in front. The whole comes
off "through the leg" apparently.
