Step 2: Tying to the Stud and Starting

     This step might get kind of confusing, but its the only way that I could explain it.  First things first, to start off, put one stud and loop in the vise, with the loop side out. Run the short cord through the loop and match the ends up. Then, take the long cord and run it behind the short cord, but do not run it through the stud. Match up the two ends and then cross them over, or swap sides with them, and match the ends up again. Now, take the short cord by the ends and go up above where you crossed the long cords. Now, drop the long cords in the middle of the loop. go in between the short cords before the loop with the cord you are using now. Tighten

Step 3: Starting the Knot

To start the knot, get the right long cord, and go over the right short cord and under the left short cord. Put this cord in front of the left long cord. Get the left long cord. Go over the left short cord, and under the right short cord. Put this cord through the back of the loop created by  the right long cord. Tighten.

Looks useful. Your photos are a little on the blurry side, so here's hoping you win a camera in one of the many Instructables contests. Good luck!

I took the pictures with my phone, only because I didn't have a camera. I can fix these pictures. Hopefully there will be changes soon!
