The chain-nose pliers are very helpful when it comes to using finer cords or for use with trimmings to embellish your knot-work. 3 flat knots Flat knots are made in two dimensions and come in round, square, or other geometric plane figures. Cruciform (cross-shaped) knots are covered in Chapter 11, but all other flat knots are in this chapter. They are, of course, not really flat – rather, they are made so that there is only one intended depth, that of the crossing of one line over another. ROund-Shaped Flat Knots One of the first round flat knots to try is a mat using one variety of the Turk’s Head Knot.

When I hear others speak of braiding or forming a braid, it is with respect to a person’s hair. Hair braiding may be performed with three or more strands of the hair caught up in bundles, perhaps being twisted as it is formed. When I hear people talk about plaits they mostly refer to three-strand intertwining and not more, and maintaining a flat structure to the individual strands or bundles of hair as well as a flat structure to the finished product. Almost nobody I know speaks of sinnet or sennit, because they do not know the term, or have only heard it in reference to sailor’s work and cannot define it differently than braiding or plaiting.
