Cut 4 equal lengths of string, 60” or longer. Use your height or wingspan to measure.

Step 2:

Fold your string in half. Tie a knot at the top, leaving a loop.

Divide the strings into pairs of 2. Knot each pair of strings about one handspan down from the top knot.

Step 4:

Divide the Strings. Pair together strings 2 and 3, 4 and 5, 6 and 7. Knot each pair about a palm’s width down from the first row of knots. Pair and knot together strings 1 and 8. This creates a circle.
