Main thing I've always found key (as I only do these once in a blue moon) is to colour key each strand (ie red/white/blue) or my brain gets ker-fuzzled....

Splicing

A good tip for those who are planning on splicing rope , after you have done the splice , roll it about on the floor under your foot a few times , it tightens it all up & finishes it off neater .
