 to make your first X, put the laces through the holes up next. To do so, cross them over to the opposite side and go through the holes from the inside out.

Thanks for the great comment!
i like the lattice look... you could try doing a double lace... ive got two diffrent colored shoelaces together on mine, it looks like a really tight version of your Double X but white and green and green and brown... it takes a lot of practice to make it look good but it is possible
