Keep the two strands from tangling.  This is very important, especially with your dealing with embroidery floss or thick thread.

Step 2: Fold the cord on the right under the middle (drone strands). Fold the cord on the left over the drones.

   Hold the strands, as best you can with your thumb and the finger directly under the strands.

Step 3: The top cord goes through the right loop and down. The bottom cord goes up through the left loop.

Step 5: Make sure the knot is tight and as flush as the others.

The sinnet (or series of knots) will twist on its own if you are doing it right.

  Until next time, God Bless…
