Hello, guys!

I want to do a "spiral wrap" like this:

Can anybody tell me how to do it? Or is there on Youtube any video about that kind of spiral wrap?

I have no idea how to start and how to finish a wrap like this ...

Thank you for your help in advance!

The black threads begin at the end of the lighter colored solid base wraps. A single black thread overwraps the base color at about a 25 degree angle going up then back down the base forming random crosses over itself. Cross wrap instruction can be found online but the photo shows a random compressed pattern that doesn't require a uniform spacing layout.

Place a black thread on the blank and tape it down on the opposite side from your trim band, make the color wrap, do the black tread pattern you like over the color thread, then finish by making your trim band out of the same thread. Myself I would anchor down everything in color preserver before finish is applied.

You will nee at least one more pull throughs. But when you do it, make sure all those over-wraps that on each guide you start and stop at the same place and spacing is the same at least for each size guide. I used to do something similar maybe 45 years ago.

Guys, thank you for your help!

It's really not easy to understand from the words what I should do. Hehe. :)

Anyone know any videos on Youtube with that kind of overwrap? I can't find it ... :(

Thank you guys for all your help!

This is what I have done. :) Link: [prnt.sc]
What do you think?

But I have now another (NEW) problem ...
I'm building a feeder rod so the first 4-5 guides are big enough to add this over-spiral-wraps.
After that comes really small guides and that kind of wraps are problematic (not easy to do) ...

So, do you have any suggestions on how to wrap all other guides (with what pattern)? Just with one color (main wrap)? Or to add just one middle trim band? Or do you have any other suggestions?

Thank you and regards!
