step by step instructions

General rule to remember: UOOU – Under Over Over Under

 1. Put two pieces of yarn to be connected parallel to each other, both in vertical position with tail ends on opposite sides.

2. Begin with the right piece of yarn. Run its tail end to the left, under the left piece of yarn,

3. then turn down following the C shape and run the tail end to the right, over the same, left piece of yarn.

4. Next run it over the right piece of yarn, forming a loop.

5. Turn up, following the O shape and run the tail end under the same, right piece of yarn to close the loop.

6. Bring the tail end to the front through the formed loop. This will create the first knot.

7. Pull tightly. Test the knot and the yarn for braking.

8. Now work on the left piece of yarn. Pull more yarn if needed so the tail end is long enough.

9. Run the tail end to the right, under the right piece of yarn,

10. then turn up, following the O shape and run the tail end over the same, right piece of yarn,

11. then over the left piece of yarn, forming a loop.

12. Next turn down, following the O shape and go under the left piece of yarn to close the loop.

13. Bring the tail end to the front through the formed loop. This will create the second knot.

14. Pull tightly to make a strong knot. Test the knot and the yarn for breaking.

15. Both knots need to be tight. Grab one piece of yarn with one hand, and the other piece of yarn with the other hand.

16. Stretch, pulling in opposite directions. This should bring the two knots together.

17. Pull until you feel that the knots are squeezed tightly. Test the knots and the yarn for breaking.

18. Cut the tail ends, leaving a tiny spot, where the two knots are squeezed together.

19. This is how it looks like when done properly:
