You will need a #6 needle with 18" of high strength thread. Carpet thread or other heavy duty material will work best.
This photo shows the completed knot turned partially inside out to expose the overlapping cords. Make sure the cords are arranged even and parallel as in the example.
You may find it helpful to use a pliers to handle the needle as the cord may be rather dense and resist the passage of the needle.
Push the needle back through the strands parallel to the first pass.
