braided crotchrope
This braided crotchrope is pretty, but also functional, since the braiding forms a pleasantly bumpy surface. To make this crotchrope, you will need two pieces of 5/16-inch rope, one 22 feet long, and the other five feet long. They can be the same color, as they are here, or they can be contrasting colors, in which case you will get a pretty chevron pattern along the braid.

To begin, take the midpoint of the 22-foot rope and place it at the center front of your partneraˆ™s waist.

Take the left end of the short rope and cross it over from left to right.
Keep crossing the outside ropes over, alternating left and right sides, until you run out of short rope. Tie the ends of the long rope in a square knot (left over right, right over left), trapping the ends of the short rope in place.

Pull the braided rope through the crotch, making sure it is properly centered.

Bring the ends of the rope up under the waist rope in back, and pull until the crotchrope has the desired tension.

Pass the ends of the rope under the vertical part of the crotch rope, from right to left, then through the loop you just formed, from left to right, making a half hitch.

Take the excess ends, and wrap them around the waist until they are short enough to tie together with a square knot. Here is the final result, with the ends tied in front with a square knot.
