Double Wrapped Loop
by Judy Ellis
Here's a way to make a secure double wrapped loop using Wubbers Wire Looping Pliers. Double wrapped loops add security and an interesting look to wrapped loops.
Instructions
Step 1: Working from a coil of 20 gauge wire leave a 1 1/2 inch tail and fold your wire in the Wubbers looping pliers.

Step 2: Continue looping wire around until you have 2 loops. You'll have to open the jaw to accommodate the 2nd loop.

Pro Tip: Work at the tip of the jaw to make this easier
