Common Whipping

Notes and Resources:

Whipping is a way of keeping the ends of rope from unraveling by wrapping them with thread/twine. The Common Whipping is the simplest and fastest technique, and doesn't require a needle; however it is not very secure. A good choice for cheap rope that you don't expect to use for a long time.
