Chinese Rope Art


Alternative method of tying wrists with double stranded rope - knotted cinching wrists

This method will create a knotted cinch of the wrist ropes that is less bulky than the other cinch methods and is preferred for the more elaborate ties that will involve connecting the arm spirals.

Follow the double stranded rope - basic form tutorial up through image 9.

The 4 strands of rope will be running up from between the body and back wrist.

 Continue wrapping the 4 strands around the front wrist and down.

Split the 4 strands into the original two double strands and bring one up on either side of the rope you wrapped around the wrists in image 9b. 
image 9d
Tie a square knot between the wrists.
image 9e
Pull both double strands up to and behind the neck rope and then back down towards the wrists.
image 9f
Pass all 4 strands around the front of the wrists, under the wrists, and up between the body and back wrist.  Do not cinch the wrists by running between them.  Start wrapping the 4 strands around the vertical stem toward the neck rope.
