The mat is made in six stages. *In the first three stages you will make half hitches without any interweaving. In the next stages begin interweaving before tying the half hitch. *The last stage is shown in two parts (interweaving and making half hitch).
* The standing End is at top center. *The Working End Is making the hitches. *I used 10' of cord in the tutorial which was sufficient to show the layout. *After forming the last half hitch you are in position to begin the SLOW process of doubling the knot
