The two cords in this knot have identical outlines. The cords cross themselves twice to form three loops. Within each loop are places (indicated by the spaces) where the other cord crosses over it. For each loop, cut open one (and only one) of these spaces.

Use the third printed knot as a placement guide. Look at the end of the knot closest to you to determine which outline goes on top of the other. Look for the first crossing of the two outlines. Place the cut outlines in position on the guide.
