Step 4: Cobra Knots
Place the buckle on a table with the back facing up.
Pass the inner right working strand over the inner left working strand. Push the outer left working strand, the left core strands, and the inner right that is now the inner left working strand to the side a bit.
Pull the outer right working strand outward a bit, then pass the end in front of the right core strands perpendicular to their length.
Bring the now inner right working strand straight down across the outer right core strand, then behind the right core strands, and up out through the loop of the outer right core strand.
Pull the working strands tight.
Repeat the process in reverse with the same strands. This completes the first right square knot.
Push all of the right strands to the side so that you can work with the left strands.
Do the same thing on the left that you did on the right, but reverse the sides, so that you start by passing the outer left strand across the core strands to start.
Once you complete the first left square knot, pass the inner right working strand over the inner left working strand as you did before.
Repeat making square knots until you reach three inches less than the desired length of the belt.
