The authors show that every knot can be embedded in codimension two in a trivial knot, and they derive corresponding theorems about embedding branched coverings in codimension two. These results (and generalizations) were obtained previously by the reviewer and by W. D. Neumann [Topology 16 (1977), no. 4, 369–393.
