Can anyone offer some help with ropework please?
I am trying to make a leash for use with my falconry, it seemed quite simple at first, but so far no-one can help.
I am trying to 'braid' several lengths of cord to make a loop at one end. The loop is continuous, i.e. there is no 'splicing' involved. I would presume you would start by 'plaiting' or 'braiding' at the loop, and then plait/braid all the loose ends together and tie them all off in a knot or 'turks head'.
If anyone has any info how I may be able to do this, I would be very grateful.
Please feel free to mail me privately at
I also have a picture available if I haven't made a very good job of explaining things!
