An amazing three part routine with a simple piece of rope and a borrowed ring.
The routine is in three parts. In Part I, a borrowed signet-ring is threaded on a rope, then penetrates it. Part II sees the ring again threaded and also knotted on the rope. Nevertheless, the ring visibly dissolves through leaving just the knot. In Part III the ring is threaded and knotted on the rope then a handkerchief is wrapped round it and the whole thing is held by a spectator. When instructed, he allows the handkerchief to drop to the floor to disclose an 'empty' rope; no ring ... not even a knot.
Since the ring is borrowed, it must be reproduced and a variety of ways are discussed for bringing this effective routine to a close. All you need for this routine may be borrowed. Learn the simple moves and you will be always ready to bewilder your audience.
