Here’s your chance to tie one on – strictly in the magic sense, of course. One of the most powerful illusions you can do with rope, this trick involves cutting and restoring it. It begins with your letting a spectator inspect a piece of ordinary rope after which you take it and hold it by the two ends. Using a pair of scissors, you then cut the rope in the middle and tie the two separated pieces together with a knot. You wrap the rope around your hand and, voila, when you unwrap it, it is magically restored into one piece! Follow that with the Three-Rope Mystery in which three ropes of different sizes are shown to audience. Poof, the ropes magically stretch until they all become the same length! They then return to their original sizes and can be examined by the audience. When it comes to amazing people, you can hang your hopes on this one!
