    Cut one 2 foot piece of Black cord. Insert it into the button hole and pull till the 2 tails are even length. Cut 4 inch of Black cord, loop around button and slip through top notches of macrame board to hold button in place. Place one tail end of black cord into bottom notch #3, and the other into notch #7.
  • 3
    Cut two pieces of Fuchsia cord that are 2 foot each and slide under the Black cord and up to the button clasp. Make sure the tails are even and make a knot. Take 2 of the tails and put them into bottom notches #4 & #6 and the other two tails are your working tails. (See Figure 1 of Template.)
  • 4
    Thread one Black bead onto each working tail and a color-lined bead on two Fuchsia strands you put in the bottom notches and slide the bead up to the knot. (See Figure 2 of Template.)
  • 5
    Cross the right working cord over the right Black middle cord, and put under the middle right Fuchsia cord. Take the middle right Fuchsia cord and put under the Black cord and up through the loop you made with the right working cord. This is a half of a square knot. (See Figure 3 of Template.)
  • 6
    Using the left working cord make a half of a square knot over the left Black cord, using the middle left Fuchsia cord.
  • 7
    Repeat the knots putting a black bead on each outside working cord, and one color-lined bead on both inside Fuchsia cords until the bracelet is 1-1/2 inch short of your desired length.
  • 8
    Double knot the last two half square knots you made, and cut off one tail leaving 1/4 inch of cord on one end, and the other end leaving long.
  • 9
    Take the 2 Black cord tails, and the Fuchsia cords you have left and make a wrapped loop, leaving just enough space on the black loop for the button to fit through. (See Figure 4 of Template.)
