5. Repeat steps 3-4 14 more times. Increase the overall length by repeating steps 3-4 again.

6. Tie each cord together into a double knot. Trim the excess cords. The tension of the stretch cord will move the chain so it surrounds the beads and forms a woven pattern.

For some reason I can't understand the instructions. Maybe because it's too early in the morning and I haven't had my coffee yet. But the " thru one chain" is messing me up. I will put it down for now and come back to it later. I never give up. Besides its too pretty to pass up on it.
