To complete the first row simply lighten the loops from RIGHT to LEFT
Once you get to the left you pull on the loop sticking out of the end on the right to tighten completely.
Because of all the loops we are putting in the cord it naturally becomes twisted. You need to un-twist the cord as you are tightening each loop. If you dont do this the finished weave will look very messy.
Also do not over tighten your loops. If you do, it will distort the final weave pattern and again your belt will look a mess. Over tightening will also make it harder to pull through the next row of loops.
