Step 1: Attach the Cords

Fold one of the pieces of cord in half and attach it to the bottom of the wooden ring with a lark’s head knot but don’t tighten it all the way.

Put one end of the second cord through the top of the lark’s head knot, even out the ends, and then tighten the knot. Now you’ll have both pieces of cord attached to the ring.
