question about rope wrapping

So I am wrapping my cataracts and I've run into a bit of a problem. I am using the method suggested by Sawyer where they suggest to put a two foot loop of rope under the final 6 inches of wrap. The end of the wrap it tucked into the loop and pulled under itself. The problem I am having is that the twine I am using keeps breaking. I was considering using a larger, stronger line but am worried that the extra size will create enough space under the wrap to cause it to be loose. I have been using very small diameter nylon twine that I bought at Bi-Mart but I also have some heavier duty stuff that is 5/32 in. Poly rope with a 60 lb. rating. I am wondering if that is too large of a diameter. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I use the same rope that I am wrapping with for the loop. No problems.

You might be able to use thin braided wire (like what you'd hand a picture with)? I doubt that would break when you pull it through.
