Process for doing braided necklace:1. Divide the strips into two bundles made of 6 strips. Make a loop, as you can see on the pictures, the actual first step in creating a sailors knot.2. Arrange your second bundle of strips as shown. 3. Wave your second pile of strips over and under. 4. Repeat it once more time. Finally, you made your sailor knot! 5. Make sure that you pull your knot tightly on the both sides (with same amount of material on both sides), and it will turn up looking like this. You made the center of the braided necklace. 6. Make a good shaped knot, flip it to side and devide the strands in 4 little piles made of 3 strands. Begin a braid. Take the right pile of strands and cross it over, the pile afterwards should be to the left side. Repeat for the left side. Great, you are making fishtail braid. Criss – cross and repeat, ending with the right pattern. 8. Continue till you use the whole fabric/desired length of necklace. 9. Use one of the strands to wrap it around the braid, and make a firm knot. 10. Use another strand and slide it on a junm ring.
