Determine the outline of the cords in the knot. The cords may cross over themselves, forming loops in the outline. Color or decorate the separate cords as you wish. Leave one copy blank.
Cut out the cord outlines.
The two cord outlines in this knot are identical. The cords cross over themselves to form three loops (one is very small). Along each loop, two parallel lines indicate 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.
Working from the bottom up, either slide cut ends under or bring cord outline to the front, until you reach the top.
