A plait is an intertwining of four or more strands, cords, ribbons, or pieces to produce an interwoven, mostly flat in finished shape, and moderately complex surface-textured structure. It is normally used as a belt or a ribbon or as a decorative object over a generally flat surface. A sinnet is an over and under intertwining that has a definite shape in cross-section. This shape varies and includes half-round, round, square, oblong, triangular, and other more complex shapes. Sinnets are comprised of more than three separate strands, cords, or ropes.
One of the features about its style that I like is that it forms a pleasing round mat but has half the number of bights in the centre that one would see in a Turk’s Head flat mat of the same size. The Turk’s Head mat would have the same number of outside bights as inside bights. The thump mat uses a less lumpy centre, which makes it ideal for coasters or other uses in which you need outer ring support. 1 2 In the centre of your cord, make an anti-clockwise turn over (a loop), forming bight #1. 3 4 – bringing it over itself to complete a second round turn, and then make one tuck under the bottom of the original turn.
Keep this in mind when studying the patterns for the other Half Hitch Mats. 1 4 47 Here the line is pulled through to show the shape so far. Form two underhand anti-clockwise loops, place the second (RH) on top of the first (LH). 5 2 3 Reverse the working end to anti-clockwise, going over, under, over, under, over, under to finish, and then continue anti-clockwise to double or triple the line. Bring the working end anti-clockwise under, over, over, under. Reverse to clockwise and bring the working end under, over, over, under, over, under.
