Dan Harlan – Tarbell 86 – Rope Magic
Tarbell’s Chinese Rope Chain:
A piece of rope tied into a chain of loops is cut into many short pieces and then magically restored.
The Many-Cut Rope Mystery:
Repeatedly cut a long rope into a bunch of tiny pieces, and restore it.
Tarbell’s Sympathetic Ropes:

Tarbell’s Zip-Over Rope Mystery:
Learn a way to steal the knots right off the center of another piece of rope.
Crocheting with your Teeth:
Restore a cut string by weaving the ends together in your mouth.
Borrowed Ring on Loop of String:
A sneaky wager with a silly solution becomes a real mystery as a knot visibly melts back into a piece of rope.
