Make a awesome hemp belt!

Step 1: What You'll Need

What you'll need :
hemp
belt buckle
scissors

Step 2: Prepare

Prepare :

Cut 4 strands of hemp about 6 times the length you want your belt to be. It's always better to get more than you need. Cut the belt off of the buckle.  Then attach a strand to the buckle by folding it in half. Put the loop under the buckle and pull the ends through. Repeat with another strand.

Step 3: Knot!

Tie a square knot around each of your "home" strands. Then use the 4 middle strands to tie a square knot. Keep switching back and forth between outside knots and middle knots. [You can also add beads!] Just keep going!


Disclaimer : I did not go over how to do a square knot in this Instructable.

Step 4: Finishing

Finishing :
When you're ready to finish the belt. Make a big square knot using all of the strands you have. Use the 4 middle strands as your middle piece and two strands on each side to tie the knots.
Whenever you want to stop, tie a knot (jump a normal one =P) then cut the excess off.
Tada! Totally wearable hemp belt!
<p>This took me a while but I finally figured it out. The key is that that each cycle is a three-step process (3 knots). At any time, there will be 8 strings, 1 through 8, left to right. Knot 1: Tie 1 and 4 around 2 and 3. Knot 2: Tie 5 and 8 around 6 and 7. Knot 3: Tie 3 and 6 around 4 and 5.</p>
Nice! Just saw this!
Very pretty!
