Wicked rope pattern tutorial

While I was working on my background for my design, I searched the web for tutorials on how to make a rope pattern for either my text or a background element.  Though there were many tutorials out there I came across one created by Daniel Bakan that  really fit the theme of my design.  This tutorial is an excellent step by step walk through of how to create this beautiful pattern with all the necessary details to help people who may not be fluent in the use of Adobe Illustrator.
