Do not join fresh string at the end of a line of meshes.
Join fresh string with a bowline knot close up to the last knot made, so
that the new knot will not have to be pulled through.
Pull the knots tight.
Browning the net after made will shrink the net and make the
knots tighter (owing to the hot water.) Net therefore with
unshrunk twine as bought.
Narrow by taking 2 meshes (1/2) instead of one: to broaden, v.v.
Turn the needle 1/2 over from R to L each knot to prevent
The loop of string can be fixed at 2 points.
Long needles are quicker than short
Long spools are useless. It is better to net on the left hand
end & pass the bulk of the meshes off, before the spool is half full.
Even netting will come after the net has proceeded a little.
To mend, cut out a square & join on
The width of a flat spool gives one side of the mesh, or a
little less (owing to the 2nd knot.)
17 x width of spool = 10 x diagonal of diamond mesh (roughly.)
Thus with spool of 1/2"
To obtain a net measuring x spool widths requires
x meshes [over] 1.7. [Therefore - 3 points]^divide length required " by (width of spool " x 1.7.) which
gives no. of meshes needed.
divide length of net required (in inches)
by width of spool (in inches) & multiply by 1[over]1.7, or
