Jump to navigation Jump to search
This is the easiest form of whipping, and is often decorative.
- Tie a thumb knot a few centimetres from the end of the rope using thin, strong twine.
- Then tie another thumb knot at the back of the rope, and continue tying thumb knots on each side of the rope to within about a centimetre from the end.
- Finish off with a Reef Knot, and trim with a sharp knife.
