Wrap the right end behind and around the left end, beginning to form a square knot. Pull the ends so the knot is close to the beads.

Step 4

Cross the left end of the elastic over the the right end.

Step 5

Wrap the left end behind and around the right end, completing the square knot.

Apply a drop of Hypo Tube Cement to the knot and let dry completely to secure the knot.
