Actually after reading your post several more times I became uncertain which was referred to -- and tried to delete the post, but you quoted me in the reply before I could -- my bad.

Thank you JP, that makes the whole exercise so simple.

cheers

Did you miss this one xarax?
Well, I see a Gleipnir variant, which is TIB.

No, I am not sooo old and forget sooo quickly as someoneElse is/does !

    Has it been noted that if the double constrictor (#1252) is brought off of the object and laid riding-turns-down on a table,
folding the out turns back down and (lifting off of the table) then brought together (180deg from their c. orientation) so that the 3rd/central turn remains pointing up, that one has then a gleipnir version!?

Wow, if I could just change my names, I could have
here a compliment to myself there !!!  --Hey, that
DL character is clearly before his time!!
  ;D   :D   ;)    :P     ::)      :o

Well, <sigh>, so it goes.  Sometimes I do catch myself
about to record a long-ago (or not-so-long-ago) already
recorded *new* knot.  After all, my familiarity with such
novelty often comes on-the-fly and with a duration of use
matching the suddenness of discovery --and not with
some new-for-use structure that builds memory.
(SOMEtimes, it is interesting to contrast the *paths*
in which I arrived at the discovery.)

I must say : that X. character has some kind of amazing
seek-&-find ability!!

I find it easiest to tie the Gleipnir in a bight by doing the same operation as when tying two half hitches bu first laying two round turns, then passing one of them to the other side of the other. Doing this once again creates a Gleipnir.

For a similar task, i usually use tie constrictors and pass them over one end of the brooms, and pull through the slack.  This way i never have to deal with the end of the rope.  You can also tie a glempir like this, although adjusting it is much more of a pain.  I don't know if this is the normal glempir, so tell me if you can't see how to tie it.  sorry for the picture, my phone's battery died.

The Constrictors won't tighten on all types of bundles like the Gleipnirs will. Using the method of tying the Gleipnir outlined by James Petersen (the JP method?  :D) makes it much less of a pain to adjust.

I tried it out today on some lengths of rectangular profile timber and it works perfect.

You could also try to tie a clove hitch around one broomstick, wrap it around all of them, and then put another clove hitch around the first one.  I say clove hitch because it is easy to tie in a bight.  You could make layers like this and then slide each layer down.  I haven't tested it, and it would require a good deal of adjustment after tying, but it may work.

I don't understand.  Maybe re-write without any pronouns like "it", "them", "this", or "one."

I've heard knudeNoggin gives good advice on these matters. ;) He shows up on this forum occasionally. Surely you haven't forgotten about him? ;D
