1Hold the ends of the rope in your right hand and run your left hand along the rope, removing tangles as you go. Keep going until you get to the center of the rope (the bight).
The rope is now doubled.
2Take the bight with your right hand, holding it next to the ends of the rope. Run your left hand along the rope until you get to the end.
The rope is now quadrupled.
3Double the rope a third time.
The rope is now octupled and about 2' long (if it’s a 15' rope) or 4' long (if it’s a 30').
OPTION4If you have a 30' rope, double it one more time to make it about 2' long.
5Finish the coil by tying an overhand knot it in.
