           ORNAMENTATION 
   Folds as Diag. III. of Manual. i. May be

 beaver, or straw shapes circularly (Diags. I. and

 (Diag. III.), triangularly (Diag. IV.). 2. May be 
 used in rows on crown band circularly, vertically 
 (Diag. V.), diagonally, diagonally to cross. 
.3. To band in fulness as Diags. VI. and VII., 
also diagonally, and diagonally to cross. 
   Folds looped at intervals.-i. May be used 
 diagonally (as Diag. VIII.), vertically, length- 
 ways. 2. Put in close rows together to entirely 
 cover a (i) brim; (2) sideband, or (3) entire 
 shape when covered (tulle, silk, etc.). 
   Two folds twisted together (i) at edge of 
brim; between edge and head; or between and 
at edge of brim. (2) At edge of crown; between 
edge of crown and head; or at edge of crown 
and head. 
   A triple plait of folds may be used in the 
same way as the twisted folds, to form entire 
crown and as a bonnet-string (Diag. XXVIII.). 
  The French, or the triple fold, may be used 
as a finish to folded brims, sidebands, and under- 
linings, in the making of "Louis" bows, etc.
