Lets get started.
 
Materials
Tools and Supplies
Slide your button on your leather and center it making the sides equal
Take your knotting cord under the leather and making it equal, now you'll begin with your square knot.  You'll want your square knot to be right underneath the button.

-Take your right cord over your center cords and under your left cord, take your left cord under your center cords and up through the loop. Pull tight.
-Take your left cord over your center cords and under your left cord, take your left cord under your center cords and up through the loop. Pull tight.
Repeat each of these knots 2x

You'll first want to stiffen about an inch of each of the cords so the crystal will slide through easily.
Slide your 1st top drill on the right cord, push it all the way up, then do one square knot underneath it.
Slide your 2nd top drill on the left cord, push it all the way up, then do another square knot underneath it.


Slide on your 3rd top drill on the right side start your square knot, do not push up this bead leave it in the center of the knot and pull it tight so that the bicone is facing upwards on the bracelet.
Repeat pattern until you reach the desired length of bracelet, standard being 64.
Now you'll end with 6 square knots.
Space out about an inch on your leather and then tie it in a knot like shown.
Nip off all your extra cords and glue/burn them.

Hope everyone enjoyed the guide.
