Do you remember the embroidery floss jewelry that was trendy in the 80's? If so this will be much easier for you. Anyways, there are four pieces of thread in total, and a slip not on each end, which means they slipped the beads they intended on using onto the two middle strands. Then on one end you tie a slip knot, (how to at http://www.bellaonline.com/ArticlesP/art4277.asp
) leave the beads at the bottom of the two middle strings, You do a knot I believe we called the mirrored 4 but don't quote me on that. You draw the far left thread across the two middle threads only and like the number 4
over the top, around the back and up through the front making a knot and pushing or working it up to the top of the slip knot. Flip it over and do the other side. I'm going to see if you can make it to this point before I type this all out. Good luck.
