Binding - French Hitch Whipping

Sands Carving Studio


Bind your taonga with a French Hitch Whipping.  French Whipping is very similar to whipping but it differs in that each wrap around the rope is done with a half hitch instead of simply wrapping around the rope. This results in an attractive design of the half hitch knots within the whipping.
