## Step 1: Materials Needed

• paper
• pencil
• ruler
• Black thick chart ( i used fabriano sheet)
• needle
• pin or thumb tack
• scissors
• Paper clips

## Step 2: Design Your Pattern

• I drew out the pattern on a plain drawing sheet
• My largest square is 28cm x 28 cm
• The squares inside are drawn by connecting the midpoints
• Mark the lines in gaps of 1/2 cm
• Draw and check the pattern you prefer to use

## Step 3: Transfer the Pattern Points to Main Sheet

• Please ignore the pencil pattern because while I was doing it , I changed it .
• Use a pin or thumb tack to mark the points

## Step 5: Start Your String Art

• The second, third and fourth squares follow the same pattern

## Step 6: Square 5

• Join the points 1 with 1, 2 with 2, 3 with 3 etc
• Do this for the bottom side also

## Step 7: Square 6

• Mark 9 points from each corner and join according to the pattern
• After finishing the square , realized that it needed something more...... so added square 5 pattern to top and bottom parts

## Step 8: Square 7

• You need to follow the same pattern for the top and bottom sides
• While I was doing it , I realized the strings were too long so they were becoming loose. So I decided to to weave it as I continued

## Step 9: The Corners

• I used white thread for the corners
• Follow the pattern and join the like numbers

## Step 10: Final Output

• Used a whitener to put a dot in the center of the eye

I hope this instructable was easy to follow.
