making the warp from yarn for a round weaving

How one can make a spherical doodle weaving:

1. Arrange the warp (these are the vertical threads). I did this by chopping a complete bunch of threads after which taping them to the facet of the ring. I didn’t measure, simply eye-balled. I additionally loosely taped the hanging threads as much as the facet which is why it seems like there may be a lot tape.

The fork actually helps to make all of it tight.
