Fold cord with side longer than the other.

Tie a knot with a small loop at the top.

You now have two strands of cord – the longer one is the working cord and the shorter one is the holding cord.

Clip the loop under a clipboard or secure to table in some fashion.

The left-hand cord is the working cord. The right-hand cord is the holding cord.

Take the left-hand cord and cross over the top of the right-hand cord forming a loop. The loop will look like the number four.

Take the end of the same cord and pass under the holding cord through the loop.
