Step 5: Over Again

Take the same piece and put it through the loop as shown, then pull. You are essentially making a knot.

Step 7: Repeat

    if youre doing it with string you can just knot it at the end... the thicker you want it to be add more strings in the middle (the pink ones in the pics).
