    The video has the instructions flashing by too quickly, could you maybe put the instructions in text steps for the Instructable?

    Okay, now that I can see what it says, I have a couple of comments. To make good rope you should probably start with twine, which is much thicker than what's shown in the video, and probably at least five ply, not three ply. The whole rock/brick thing: You need to hang it low enough that the other end is on the ground, and weight down the other end with a rock/brick to keep the rope from uncurling while it dries. I'll probably try it sometime, it seems cool, and then I'll have rope for making a hammock :P
