Part 6: finishing the weave

Here the cord has been inserted in to the wooden fid. This makes the process of threading the over-under pattern easier. As the slack is pulled through the standing parts be sure to remove the twist each time.

bulk cord in white and hand dyed colors available here

Same pattern with the fid as before, here we see the 11th part being placed in the 13 part design.

Cord is pulled through and parallel to the weave.

Here the cord is doubled and a larger gauge fid is used to manage the longer cord through the multiple weaves of the expanding knot.

Keeping the slack cord tangle free is important.
