You can also do this with 6 or more instead of 4 if you want a rounder thicked column

If it would be possible to make a head like that out of rope, Id take those over monkey fists any day...


Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

Posted:Also, imagine making some square braided heads with 1 inch thick rope... 6 strands would be even better smile Surface area like a cathedral but the rope is round so it has more volume.

Posted:We teach braiding (or, rather, I do), and suggest 3/8" or smaller for square braids. It's a lot harder to keep the rope strands straight as the size gets bigger. However, a round braid is a lot easier to manage than the square braid with larger rope sizes. As the ropes get larger, ease of tying decrease, partially due to a reduction in "bendability" about a given point on the rope.



I'll actually have more on this later.
