Yes, Êyour description does sound like the knot. ÊAlthough, I'm not sure I completely understand the vocabulary of everything described. Ê
Here's my best try at describing the knot.
Please, no: your "first" try. It must improve. (-:
Let's settle some terminology. Please describe the knot AS IT EXISTS
TIED--never mind HOW it got tied (which can be a separate matter).
Essentially, I want to have the knot traced with attention running along
the rope from the "SPart"--for a loopknot, the one end that bears (100%)
load, opposing the loaded eye--, all the way through the knot. This is
what I did, roughly.
With the standing part coming from the left, ...
I'd say "okay, so far", except that you later do something with this
"standing part", which makes it seem like something quite other.
Again, please just verbally trace the rope as requested (even if you
need to sort of flatten
the knot structure a bit so as to have
some unambiguous points of crossing.
I tie an overhand knot, ...
But here you've given no orientation for that knot: does the path
run clockwise (thus down), anti-c. (up)? We're coming from the left,
and then ... ?!
ÊThen, I take the end of the standing part (the end on the left) and, from the top, put it in and through the loop of the overhand knot running it under ...
And here I'm completely lost. Consider the SPart as endless--it goes out
to whatever is bearing load. Again, please describe a TIED knot, not
a work in progress; I think this will help.
As for "the loop in the overhand knot", I cannot fathom this: an Overhand Knot
has a central space bounded by its belly & spine
but "loop" brings on connotations of an eye.
the working length of rope ( the rope to the right of the overhand knot.)
Then, bring the same end up over the working length of rope
(-: The "working" length should, of course, be what you're working
It almost sounds as though we should just swap those terms in your text.
(You admitted uncertainty in them, yes.)
I think a vague image is forming with me, and that, indeed, you've got
you terms backwards. But STILL we need clarification on the orientation
of the Overhand--and you might be simply done.
So, better your best, and we're more than halfway home,
if not all there!
