A line also may be made up with a buntline coil when one end is fixed to, say, a leaf; in fact this is more or less its original use, as mentioned earlier. In this case the line is coiled up beginning some distance from the fixed point and working toward the free end. Then, using the length of line between the fixed point and the coils, frapping turns are put on by rolling the coils along the line towards the fixed point. (This is done to avoid inducing twists and kinks as would be the case if the line were passed around and around the coils.) A bight is taken in the remaining line and passed forward through the tops of the coils. It is then lifted up, spread out and dropped over the tops of the coils as previously described.
