lashings?

    In the old style birch bark canoes are
    the lashings between the headboard and
    outwale ends tied into a simple knot for
    decorative purposes or is there more to it:confused:

    Looks like a simple rap around the current lashing
    in the order shown. What it does is it ties the
    lashing to the outwale else the wrappings keep sliding
    down towards the small end.
