    Any ideas how I can fix it?

    Should I cut the split parts and try to tie new knots?

    If the splits aren't too bad you can just trim the strings to a point they are clean. Then you should take a lighter and melt the edges of the strings and then tie a after they cool down. If it is really bad you can buy a new draw string and replace it.

    So it is made of synthetics when it can me melted with a lighter?

    Mine has actually split in a tumble dryer, this is what it looks like:

    I was also thinking of sewing the ends when I cut them off and skipping the knots altogether....

    Just cut it and then burn them. They will melt and won't unravel again. I do it all the time.

    Very happy to help! You may want to do this with new pants before you use them if the ends are not melted already.
