**For bracelet follow only Steps 1 - 4**
These photos show the belt made with a larger weight yarn and 2 different colors to help with seeing the pattern and path of the knot
Step 1: Gather all supplies needed as stated in pattern
**Please note that the Knot Diagram included with the pattern is NOT actual size.
Print out the diagram and then enlarge it 150% with a photocopier
(This Styrofoam block is covered with felt)
Step 2: Lay Cord A down over diagram starting 8" in from left end of Cord A
Use straight pins to hold cord in place
Step 3: Continue laying Cord A down in path of knot making sure to cross over or under according to the diagram
Step 4: Repeat Steps 2-3 with Cord C by laying it on the opposite side of knot diagram with the 8" mark starting at * at the "C"
Step 5: Repeat Steps 2-3 with Cord B - You will be laying Cord B right next to Cord A and following the same path
Step 6: Repeat Steps 2-3 with Cord D - You will be laying Cord D right next to Cord C and following the same path
Note that the beginning ends of all cords will be shorter than the ending ends - this will not affect the look of the finished project
Step 7: Check that all over and under crossings are correct. Remove all pins.
Step 8: Adjust all loops of the knot to remove spaces so knot looks as below. Secure all crossings with a yarn needle and matching yarn on the WS of the woven knot. Follow other finishing instructions in the pattern.
Step 9: Cord ends will be different lengths. Mark all 8 cord ends with a pin 7" from the edge of woven knot.
Step 10: Sew cord ends to WS of Back Tabs.
See instructions for remaining steps of finishing.
