  3. Cut 7 pieces of yarn (any colour you like), each should be 60 cm.
  4. Gather all your strings of yarn and tie 1 knot at the end of all (together) the strings, leave 2 cm as a tail.

5. Insert the yarn into the hole of your cardboard disc.

6. The knot should be on the back side of your disc. Spread the strings of yarn into the slits you made earlier, there should be one slit that doesn’t have any yarn.

7. Now, count three from the slit you don’t have yarn on, which ever slit you land on, you have to pick the strand of yarn from there and replace it in the slit with no strand of yarn. It is a bit confusing.
