Here is a closeup of how the knot should look now. Take your needle and thread and about 1 inch from the knot sew together the four strands of rope to keep them flat on the back.. Repeat on the other side. Here is the front. Trim your ropes so that all of the ends are even and the whole thing is about 19 inches long with the knot at about 7 1/2 inches (so that it is on the side of your head). Cut two pieces of twill at about 3 inches. Fold at about 1/4 inch. Here it is on.
