Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Cut the Cords About 1meters for Each Color.
You need at least 6 strands of cord (3 on each side). Tie them together by using an overhand knot and tape it to your work surface.
Step 2: Starting With the Outer-right Cord, Tie a Backward Knot Make a Ninety Degree Angle With the Tying Cord Over the Top of the Cord You Are Tying It To.
Note: Make the same knot twice on the adjacent cord.
Step 3: Loop It Under and Back Through the Opening. Pull Up and to the Left to Tighten (remember to Make Two Knots on Each Cord).
Step 4: Once You Have Knotted the Outer Right Cord to the One Next to It, Do the Same to the Next Cord Closer to the Middle.
Step 5: Continue Knotting Towards the Left, Until the Outermost Cord Has Carried Over to the Middle. This Is One Half of the Chevron Pattern
Step 6: Now Pick Up the Outermost Cord on the Left Side (show Here in Dark Blue) and Make a Forward Knot by Creating a 4-shape Over the 2nd Cord.
Step 7: Then Loop It Under and Back Through the Opening. Don’t Forget to Knot Twice Over Each Cord!
Step 8: Once You Have Knotted the Outer Left Cord to the One Next to It, Do the Same to the Next Cord Closer to the Middle.
Step 9: Continue Knotting Towards the Right Until the Outermost Cord Reaches the Middle.
Tie a forward knot with the two middle strands to connect the two halves. The first chevron row is complete! Note: If you have done everything correctly up to this point, the strands you are tying together in the middle will be the same color.
