CROWNING

CROWNING, the finishing part of a knot made on the end of a rope. It is performed by interweaving the ends of the different strands artfully amongst each other, so as that they may not become loosened or untwisted. The design of these knots is to keep the end of the rope fast in some place assigned for it: they are more particularly useful in all kinds of stoppers.
