Chinese Rope Art
||Follow the double
stranded rope - basic forum - example 1 tutorial up through image 9.
You will have the 4 stranded rope coming up from between the body and the back wrist.
||Run the 4 strands around the
front of the outside wrist, under that wrist, and then pull it up
between the two wrists.
Try to keep all 4 strands relatively flat and even to minimize bulk between the wrists.
||Cinch the wrists by running all 4 strands in a full circle between the wrists.|
||After completing the full circle between the wrists to create the cinch, pull the 4 strands up and behind the neck rope.|
||Then pull the 4 strands back down toward the wrists.|
||Come back between the wrists,
wrapping the rope around the previously created cinch.
Note: Essentially you are cinching the wrists twice, which can be quite bulky, especially with larger diameter rope. At this step, if you feel there is sufficient rope between the wrists after the first cinch, you can run the 4 strands down between the body and wrists and up around the front of the wrists before continuing with the wrapping shown in the next step. This avoids creating the second cinch.
||A close up view of the cinching between the wrists. Because you are working with two double stranded ropes, the amount of rope between the wrists can be quite bulky and may be uncomfortable if cinched tight.|
||Wrap the 4 strands around the
vertical stem working up towards the neck.
