Take your fingers out of the loops. Keep pulling the loops to make there be no loops. Pull the order you have weaved it.

Step 7: Cut and Light

Cut the bigger end of rope to make it about the same size. Light both of the ends so it changes form. Merge them together so it changes to the same forms together. CAUTION CAN GET VERY HOT. I'm not responsible for any injury.
