At 8:45 . . . "Cabling" is what happens if ya don't get all that twisting out of the plies making up the 2 bundles before beginning the 2nd loop.

Good luck.

I saw a quicker way to do it the method Clay Hayes does seems to take a while.  I watched a few videos making flemish but never saw that way of doing it.  New one on me.

He does a Flemish twist loop on one end and a spliced loop(like loggers and sailors use) on the other. It looks like it makes it easier to get the length right. I've often wondered why he doesn't do a spliced loop on both ends.

Found another...clearly don't need to worry about middle of string until after both loops are done...

She untwists the middle before making the second loop right around 17:04
