When your drum becomes loose you will need to weave your drum tight.

With the loose piece of rope hanging off, You will make three passes.First, you cross it over the very next 2 sections. Then pass the rope under the second section. Then pass it over and under the first section and under the second section too.
Now pull tight until it twists.
Do the very next two sections, and next two, etc. until you reach the beginning again.

Try to keep the weave low, near the bottom, and even.

tie off and go.JPG To start the second row, you need to weave underneath the corner where you first started as indicated in thes pictures keeping in mind to creat small diamonds and not large triangles. Those that go apart must come back together.
Weave as shown.
