I don't have any pictures... I hope I can explain this well - and hope it works Cheesy

I think the way to start would be to begin with two sets of strings (Two [I like thin bracelets/necklaces so I always use two, four may work better] long ones you tie around the middle; two middles), and tied each together into the loop.

Then, start tying each set into a seperate chain, stopping after awhile (Maybe 13 or 14 knots) when they are the same size.

After they are out a little and equal, cross one of the longer strings from the left side to the right side, and one from the right side to the left side. (I hope this is making sense) Tie the string you crossed over into the opposite side it was from. Don't pull to tight though, I think they might start over-lapping. Keep going and tie the sides into each other from time to time to keep them close.

If you need me to explain more, just ask Cheesy
