Step 1

Cut 1 x 1.5m length of Cord and 2 x 34 ball lengths of Ball Chain.

Step 2

Leave about 10cm of cord on the end and run the rest up the middle of the ball chain. To start wrap the cord around the back of the ball chain bead on the left then round the front going through the gaps. Hold the cord that runs through the middle.

N.B Do not panic if it starts to twist. It will right itself when you go back up the other way.

Step 3

When you have reached the end come back down the other way to make a V pattern. Making sure your pulling it tight.

Step 4

When you get back down the other end tie a knot.

Step 1

Step 5

Lay the end cords parallel to each other making a circle. Cut a 20cm Piece of Cord to create a sliding knot.
