The procedure:

Step 1:
String 4 R, 1 P, 1 R, 1 S, 1 R and 1 P (fig. no. 1) and tie them into a circle using a double knot (fig. no. 2). Leave ca 8 cm at the end of the line for sewing in. You can sew it in straight away so that the end of the line does not get in the way or you can sew it in at the end of the work as usual.
