This is a quick way to prevent the ends of a rope from unravelling.

  1. Use about 30cm of thin whipping twine.
  2. Start with a loop of twine along the rope.
  3. Proceed to bind a series of turns around the rope
    (about the same length as the diameter of the rope).
  4. Thread the end of the twine through the loop.
  5. Finally pull the other end of the twine so that a lock is formed within the binding.
  6. Cut off the loose ends.

Note: If the length of the turns is too long or too short the whipping is less robust and it will come loose.
