    Depending on the size of the rope and the application intended, you have have luck with a specialized cording foot made for the sewing machine. They are designed with a channel to hold and guide the cording as it is being sewn onto the base fabric. The stitches would run in line with the rope as opposed to bar tacking across. I have never done this but the theory would seem to be sound again depending on the application.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    It's nice to see one of the older topics come up once and again. New thoughts about old questions makes interesting conversation.

    I'm glad you found it.

    I was thinking about doing this with the Dutch Biners. Using DBs on cord is easier than on webbing, but I still need huggers...so I was thinking of ways to connect the cord to the webbing. Dutch just made a loop, which works fine...but obviously I have to tinker with it.

    So far I've just tied the loops around it, but I think I'm gonna try the double-sheet-bend next.

    I was hesitant to sew the cord on b/c I'm not sure how the cord would take the stitch. If you use Spectra in a sheath, only the sheath and maybe a few strands of the Spectra would be taking the force. If you use Amsteel, I wonder if it could come unbraided.

    Looks like we need a techie to test it for us. Who's got the gear at work?

    What is the rope and what is the webbing. There is definitely ways to make this work that don't involve loops at the end.

    My first guess would be a insert the rope into the webbing then apply two or three traditional whippings to lock the two together.

    If it is a hollow braid rope to webbing, you could locking-brummel the two together.

    I've done a hollow braid to 3strand end-to-end splice that looked sharp. I know this one could be done...

    Do you have pics of that? What kind of rope and webbing?

    I don't see the rationale behind joining the two in a way that is almost certain to derate the resulting product.

    My preference would be for a spliced eye and a sewn eye larksheaded together.

    A larkshead would derate the union too. Benefit would be the temporary union.

    Why not just do what blkx01 suggested? Splice an eye into the rope (with maybe a little vinyl tubing to protect the webbing from the cord in the eye) and insert the webbing through the eye and sew erm... THREAD INJECT the webbing loop?
    Less derating than the larkshead combo.

    I have stitched amsteel into the channel of a bridge on Hangnout's suggestion and it's worked fine.
