Step 3: Making the Hands's Lace
Make at least three turns on the wire using the pliers. You can also press the wire afterwards with a vice so it would be tighter and stronger.
(The wire thickness depends on the thickness of the rope and pet size but is better to use thicker wire for safety reasons)
