Doubling Dogbane Indian Hemp Cordage (Part 3/3)

If you want something a little thicker and stronger, you can reverse wrap again. In the last video, I showed the reverse wrap of cordage. We said to roll the top strands forward or clockwise then bottom one would wrap counter clockwise.

This time we are going to reverse the process. We need to do this in order to tighten the twist that we already made. Take the bottom strand and twist towards you counter clockwise and then wrap the top clockwise.

This cordage can be used for a variety of purposes like a bow string, fishing line, fishing nets, etc. I've used it for a tripod lashing for a tripod in our garden and repair the laces in a moccasin that broke.
