SOME BASIC TERMINOLOGY IN CASA KNOTSAll TH are tubular knots. It means that the start and the end of such a knot coincide. In addition,when one counts the number of bights, the end of the final bight coincides with the start of the firstbight. Furthermore, when I make the calculations of the disposition of the first wrap, I use thenumbers on the picture below that are in red. That is, I do not use the bights, but the crossings of therope. However, the use of this pattern is characteristic for one thing – when the working end crossesthe standing end, for instance in position1(in the lower or upper part of the picture), it means thatbight No2 is started; when the working end crosses position2, then bight No3 is started, etc. Tosummarise:when the working end crosses the rope in posZ, then bight No(Z+1)is started. THIS IS ONE OF THE DIFFERENCES WITH THE WAY SIDNEY WOOD ON HIS WEB DOES THECALCULATIONS FOR BUILDING CASA KNOTS. His web is accessible onhttp://www.taylortel.net/~stwood/index.html.Another thing to be mentioned is the direction in which the knot is built – it starts from the lowerright-hand side and continues in the direction shown by the red arrow.

CALCULATION OF THE LOCATION OF THE FIRST BIGHT IN A CASA KNOTLET THE KNOT I DESCRIBE ISPPARTS ANDBBIGHTS. As per Sidney Wood on his website -http://www.taylortel.net/~stwood/lesson2.html 1.If P is greater than B (ieP>B), then the first wrap finishes at a positiondetermined by the following formula:R = P – X*B + 1, where X is the number of whole times B is repeated in P.Furthermore, X shows the number of times the running end crosses the first half of the firstwrap.Eg 1:Let’s have a look at 11x9 casa knot – R = 11 – X*9 + 1X = 11/9 = 1R=11-1*9+1=2+1=3; ie the firstwrap finishes at bight No 3 havingin mind thatbight No 1 is locatedat the position of the standing endof the casa knot(see Pic 1)Pic 1 – 11x9 casa knot

Eg 2: Let’s have 11x4 casa knot: - R= 11 – X*4 +1X = 11/4 = 2 R = 11 2*4 + 1 = 4; iethe 1

wrap finishes atbight No 4 and there are2 crossings during the 1
