Now to start the weave, fold both the ropes in half in the center. Now lay the ropes over each other. Begin by passing both ends of rope 1 (the red rope) under rope 2 (the tan one). PULL TIGHT!
This is the key in the weave. ALWAYS KEEP TENSION ON THE WEAVE!!!!!
Now, pass rope 2 under rope 1. Continue with this pattern. I hold the rope with the unwoven strands below me( I find it much easier). After you have part of the necklace finished stop weaving and pull the top of rope 1 and form a loop. The loops diameter should be about 3/4 in.
