Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Old Church Slavonic петля (petlja, a curve, a bend), from Proto-Slavic *реtьlь or *реtьljа. According to Vasmer, a relation with Proto-Germanic *fatōną (to hold, to seize) is possible, which would make it cognate with German fassen, English fetch and Old Norse fata, among others
