Step 3: Start weavn'
First step: Tie any not you want, (monkey's fist, overhand, etc.) just so that you don't have to melt the ends together in the middle of the bracelet.
If you wanted to get the optional string, tie it to something secure, (Tree, table leg, chair leg, etc.) and then tie your not at the end so the string won't fall off.
I forgot to show you how to start it! pretty much just cross two cords so one is coming out the back and one is coming out of the front, then tie it off and then start weaving with the long ends. (first picture)
Look at the pictures and the picture notes to get the instructions.
