Step 1:

To start make a crown knot. do not pull it tight. I usually tie this in hand but I need two hands to operate my camera

Step 2:

Take any cord and bring it over one cord, under the next and back out of the way.

Step 3:

Bring the next cord over one, under one and back out of the way

Step 4:

Bring the third cord over one and under ant up through the bight of the first cord

Step 5:

Bring the final cord over the bight of the first cord and under and up through the bight of the second cord

Step 6:

Tighten this diamond shape

Step 7:

Take any cord and bring it to the left of the adjacent cord over one and under the bight as shnown

Step 8:

repeat for the next cord

Step 9:

Same for the third .......

Step 10:

.....and the fourth

Step 11:

Take any cord and bring it over two and under two (crossing point)

Step 12:

Repeat with the next cord

Step 13:

and the third

Step 14:

Ditto. This gives you a herringbone pattern

Step 15:

Tug each end a little to the left and bring it up through the crown knot going under the strand in front of it. Starting with any strand of the final crown knot that you made tighten the knot. As in any tightening DO NOT try to do it in one go. Tighten slowly in several; stages and the results will be more pleasing.
