Attach loop end to a clipboard or tape to your work surface with a piece of tape.
Separate the hemp into three sections (two strands each).
Make a square knot. *Take the two left strands and pass over the center strands and under the two right strands. Then take the right strands and pass under the center, then up through the loop of the left strands. Pull tight.
