Materials



You will need an even number of strings (I used 8) and two strands of each color.

Set- Up



(Tie a knot) Divide the strings: (12344321) so that the colors mirror. Split (so 4) on each side

1st Row


Take string 1 and make forward knots across the first side. Take string two and make forward knots all the way cross the same side. Continue with 3 and 4. (Its like a chevron except you don't join the two sides) Now take string 1 on the opposite side and make backward knots across the second side. Take string two and make backward knots all the way across the same side. Continue with 3 and 4.

When you're done you should have 2 'columns'

Take both 1 strings (Should be on the far left and far right) And tie them together (behind the other strings)

DO NOT TIE ANY OTHER STRINGS TOGETHER!!!

2nd Row



Re-separate the strings so that it goes 43211234

Take string 4 and make forward knots across the first side. Take string 3 and make forward knots all the way cross the same side. Continue with 2 and 1. (Its like a chevron except you don't join the two sides) Now take string 4 on the opposite side and make backward knots across the second side. Take string 3 and make backward knots all the way across the same side. Continue with 2 and 1.

When you're done you should have 2 'columns'

Take both 4 strings (Far left and far right) and tie them together (behind the other strings.)

Now either repeat steps 1 and 2 or make an optional bow-tie:

(optional) diamond crown



Take both 1 strings and tie them together 3 times. Set them aside.

Take both 2 strings and tie them together 3 times. Set them aside.

Take both 3 strings and tie them together 3 times. Set them aside.

(You should already have tied both 4 strings together once, tie them together 2 more times.)

Now align all the strings on top of each other. (both 1 strings, both 2 strings, both 3 strings, and 4 strings on the bottom)

Tie s forward knot on the left string 2 using the left string 1.

Tie a backward knot on the right string 2 using the left string 1.

Tie a forward knot on the left string 3 using the left string 2.

Tie a backward knot on the right string 3 using the left string 2.

Take both 1 strings and tie them together 3 times.

Take both 2 strings and tie them together 3 times.

Take both 3 strings and tie them together 3 times.

Repeat from row 1 until desired length.

Photo Tutorial


Here is a photo-tutorial for the first and second rows. (No diamond crown yet)
Sorry the pictures are blurry!

The finished 1st column of the 1st row


The two columns for the 1st row


the two number '1' strings are tied behind all the others


The finished 1st row


Starting order/alignment of the 2nd row


The 1st column of the 2nd row-starting order/alignment


The 1st column of the 2nd row- result


The 2nd column of the 2nd row- starting order/alignment


The two columns of the 2nd row
