Take the end of the long piece of rope you just passed under the side loop in the previous step and begin to pass it under and over the parts of the knot until you reach the top of the first loop you formed in step one. As you weave through the loops, keep your cord or rope at the same tension as the surrounding ropes, don't pull it tight.
