1. Measure your neck

Wrap the twine around your neck to take your neck measurement.

2. Determine how much twine you need

Add 2 inches to your neck measurement, and then multiply that number by 2. Multiply the current result by 4. This gives you the number of inches you need per strand of twine.

3. Cut the twine

Cut two strands of twine to the measurements determined in the previous step.

4. Fold the strands

Line up the strands, and center the shorter strand to the longer strand. Fold the strands together.

5. Tie the strands in a lark's knot

Pull the crease of the fold under a key ring, and then pull the crease through the ring. Pull the four center strands through the two-strand circle, and then pull on the center strands to tighten the knot to the ring.

6. Position the strands

Position the strands so there are two strands in the center and one strand on either side.

7. Tie the strands in the first half of a square knot

Lay the left strand over the center strands, and pull the right strand under the center strands. Pull the strands tight.

8. Finish the knot

Pull the left strand under the center strands and the right strand over the center strands. Pull the strands tight to finish the square knot.

9. Tie a series of square knots

Continue until there are 2 inches of square knots.

Pull a bead over the center strands, and tie a square knot over the bead.

11. Continue the necklace

Tie two 1 1/2-inch rows of square knots, and add a bead after each. Tie a 1/2-inch row of square knots, and add a bead.

12. Finish the second half

Follow the steps in reverse to tie the second half of the necklace, ending with the 2-inch row of square knots.

13. Tie the ends together

Remove the lark's knot from the key ring, and tie the ends together.
