If you're in the need to join two types of ropes together, this is the best way because it is tight and secure.

Have you done something odd to the photos? It's quite hard to tell which bight is on top and which is under.

Maybe draw over the edges to make them stand out?

I could probably increase the shadows since i decreased them in the editing.
