Whip making – #11 or 12

I did a little 2 foot whip by request for someone.  I did a basic wrap with over under pattern, but we ran out of time due to some poor decisions on both of our parts … don’t ever sit down to a dinner club with a live band & drink 3 or 6 glasses of wine if you’re on a dead line.  It will lead a weekend in bed.  She tied on her own latex fall.  It’s an oilskin motorcycle hide from Tandy Leather.

Core is diamond braided 4 part with 5 strands of lamp chain spiral wrapped in the same leather as rest of the whip.

It’s an 8 strand/part into a 6 part herringbone into a the unsymmetrical O2U1, then O1U2 pattern to end.
