Step 3: Three Rope Strands

Separate the length of rope into its three strands.  

Note: Each length of rope will produce enough material for three rings. (one from each strand)

Be careful to unwind the three strands gently. The goal is to preserve the twist of each strand.  
To maintain the tight twist of each strand's individual fibers; allow the strand to twirl while unwinding it from the original rope.  
Do not grab a strand and pull it like shucking corn;  the fibers will seperate.  Each strand needs to be unwound from the main rope rather than pulled apart.
