Trick Sennit

  1. Make two cuts in a leather strap to form three equal width strips joined at each end.
  2. Pass one end of the strip under the centre strip and over the two edge strips from right to left.
  3. Pass the same end under the two edge strips and over the centre strip from right to left.
  4. Untwist the strips as necessary to flatten out the sennit.
  5. Repeat to form a longer sennit
