ᴱQ. qint (qinty-) n. “loop, stitch in knitting” (Category: to Weave)

A noun appearing as ᴱQ. qint (qinty-) “loop, a stitch in knitting” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√QITYI (QL/78).

Neo-Quenya: I update this early root to ᴺ√KWIT “knit” to serve as the basis for Neo-Quenya “knitting” words, and would therefore retain ᴺQ. quint “loop, stitch (in knitting)” as a word with the rare but possible final consonant cluster -nt. I would use it as a “stitch” in sewing as well.
