Notes
  • Grog notes: "The Chain Sinnet is tied by many of us as children. It turns a piece of string into a pleasing chain. And, when pulled, all of the knots vanish as if by magic. It is found on dress uniforms; it can be used to shorten, and add bulk to, the end of a light pull; and it is also used by climbers as a means of preventing a rope getting tangled, e.g., when being washed."
  • See The Ashley Book of Knots # 2868, p. 472.
