Thank you for making this! It would be cool to know how to do with a clip though, too. TFTI! (Thanks for the Instructable, taken from TFTC in geocaching)

If you leave a little extra length on th knot end you can loop the pieces through a buckle and burn them and on the other end with the loop you can cut it into two strands to loop it through the other part of a buckle you could do the same with a clasp.

Step # 6 is unclear as to what 'ends' you are referring to and why are you fusing these 'ends' together?

Can u do it with clips instead of just the not And loop to hold it on?
atc00 (author)  rparente991 year ago
Yes it is very easy to modify just loop it on the clip and burn the end and tie and burn on the end
could you do this with yarn? cuz that's all I've got right now
Its also known as the fishtail or cross weave. Been around a long time like most knots have. Check out Ashley's Book of Knots...very old but cool book.
It's just not as common as some of the other ones. But no you didn't invent it.
Oh well I've seen the zipper weave in a lot of friendship bracelet books and its been around for a while..
