“Grummet-Stop -- Made by unlaying a piece of rope of the desired size about a foot more that three times the length required for the strop. Place the centre of the open round the block and thimble; mark with chalk where the parts cross; take one strand out of the rope; bring the two chalk marks together; and cross the strand in the lay on both sides, continuing round and round till the two ends meet the third time; they are then halved, and the upper halves half-knotted and passed over and under the next strands, exactly as one part of a long splice.” -Britannica, 1910
