Braiding a Loop Into The End Of a Rope

Ok sailors, this landlubber just attempted a braided loop at the end of a 5/8" 3 strand nylon rope and I'm impressed. I'm also disappointed it took me over 60 years to discover this simple method. But I suspect there are tricks to this and I saw the mention of 3 different ways to accomplish this so thought I would ask. Yes, I could watch the dozens of youtube videos, but that wouldn't include the knowledge of experience.

Example, do you braid back 2 or more times??
