Sailmaker's Whipping (braided rope)

  There is 1 technique you should learn before this one. Click here to see it.

Notes and Resources:

When performing a Sailmaker's Whipping on braided rope, there are no cuntlines between strands of the rope to follow, but you can apply the same principle by putting some number of vertical stitches at arbitrary positions on the rope, as shown here.

    Cuntlines, for the unobservant, are the indents between the strands of a rope. Whipping tends to bridge these on thicker ropes, which can cause problems as things catch in the hole underneath, and so further securing is sometimes used to pull the whipping into the space. Because shibari and kinbuku techniques use smaller lines, this is less pertinent here: you'll tend to squash the strands in to fill the gap anyway.
