Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. Happy knotting! You’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into two 30 inch, two 20 inch and one 10 inch lengths. Center the 30 inch cord under the two middle strands. Pull tightly and slide the knot up to the top. Finish the 2nd half of the square knot by folding the left cord over the middle strands and under the right cord. Pull tightly and repeat the steps – left, right, left, right . . . To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 3-4 knots along the backside.

The thicker cord might be a bit shorter if you want. Lay the threads double and place the 12 threads in the starting position as shown under. (I will refer to the disc as a clock: 12 o´clock is on top, 3 o´clock is to the right, 6 o´clock is bottom ans 9 o´clock is left.) This is the starting position of the threads. First take the inner right thread in the 12 o´clock position and move it down below the two threads on the left side, in the 9 o´clock position. Take the inner left thread in the 12 o´clock position and move it down below the two threads on the right side, in the 3 o´clock position.
