Ok Craftsters, I need your help!  I've seen my friends wearing these sweet braided cuffs.  But there is no knot, no clasp, no nothing.  Its just a circle of braid.  Here's a picture of one:

I KNOW there has to be a ridiculously easy way of doing this, and Im sure I could figure it out with lots of stress and profanity, but I figured I'd see if any of you lovely people had already been through that  Wink

Thanks sooooooo much in advance!

I'm not totally positive, but I would guess there's some glue hiding under one of the overlapping areas.

 Cheesy I found instructions for the first time yesterday evening, how funny that you're asking this morning...

It's not completely endless, but i guess you could hide the one knot you need or use glue instead.

I found this too, and it was perfect!  Ive made 3 already!  Thanks so much for your help! 
Im new to making handspun yarn, so everything is so knobby and inconsistent, but I thought some of these braclets might be a great way to use it up!  thanks!
