The procedure:

Sew through each row several times, so that it is sufficiently strong. Before stringing the beads, check all the holes to ensure that they are clear.

Step 1:

String 6x Tw (fig. no. 1) and tie them in a circle with a double knot (fig. no. 2). Leave about 8 cm at the end and sew the end of the line in.

Step 2:

Pull the needle through the second hole of the Tw (fig. no. 3), add 1x Tw (fig. no. 4) and pass to the adjacent Tw (fig. no. 5 + 6). Repeat this around the circle (fig no. 7) and add a total of 6x Tw.
