Step 5: Initial Crossover

Picture of Initial Crossover
The initial crossover will set the diameter of the ring.

Start at the middle of a single strand and cross over equal lengths of the strand ends to form a loop.   Pass one end through the loop; forming the start of a simple overhand knot. 
Pull the ends until the loop decreases to the desired diameter of the finished Ring.

Make sure to line-up the cork screw twists of the overlaped ends of the strand so that they naturally "interlock" and fall into their Wind Intervals.

Note:  A right handed or left handed overhand knot may be needed to make sure the crossover is in the correct direction to match the original wind orientation of each strand.  The Wind Intervals should interlock naturally without any deformation of the strands original shape.
