Two strips of fleece.



Cut two pieces of fleece. Tie in a knot. Make a box stitch (see diagrams below)
Fold strand 2 diagonally across the box stitch between strands 1 & 4 leaving a small loop; (fig. B). Fold strand 4 diagonally across box stitch between strands 2 & 3 leaving a small loop. Hold strands in place with one hand.
With your other hand, weave strand 1 diagonally across the box stitch over strand 2 and under strand 4. Weave strand 3 diagonally across the box stitch over strand 4 and under strand 2; (fig. C). Pull tightly, stretching the cord slightly to secure.

    How wide do you cut the strips?

    1. Betty Bose says:

      The contributor didn’t specify but I would guess an inch. Try it out and adjust if it isn’t to your liking.

What do you think?
