Ever find yourself in a field of grass and desperately need a rope? Yeah, me too. Turns out you don’t have to live rope-less, you can just grab a bunch of grass and twist them perfectly into a strong and sturdy rope that can hold much more weight than you think. Here’s how, from Youtuber NightHawkInLight.
It’s an ancient method but it’s also really, really easy. He writes:
Note that for best results, each of the two tails of the rope should be twisted an equal number of turns as they’re wound. That will ensure that the two coils wind around one another tightly and in a double helix pattern. If one side is twisted less than the other it will tend to stay straight, while the more twisted side coils around it like a spring.
