Very easy rope making

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


A very easy method for making colourful rope using wool and 2 pencils.


Colourful wool
2 pencils / lengths of dowel or plastic tubing


Take 3 - 6 strands of wool of the same length about 3 times longer than you actually want.
Tie at both ends.
2 cubs work together
Insert pencils just infront of each knot.
Hold taught and both cubs twist anticlockwise until the wool is tightly twisted.
When the wool is twisted tightly, someone holds the centre of the wool and keeping it taught, the cubs put both ends together.
When the holder in the middle lets go, the wool will twist together forming a lovely brightly coloured rope.
Tie the 2 combined ends together.

Ideal for using to tie up a roll mat!
