Fig. 1- Fold both strands of Rexlace (or S'getti) in half and to find the centers and line the centers of the Rexlace stands on a key ring or lanyard snap. Overlap one color over the other, as seen here (like colors should be parallel). To make things easier, number each strand on the cords so that you can see the pattern of each stitch.

Fig. 4- Repeat steps 3 and 4. Continue this pattern until you have achieved the desired length.

To finish, tie off with an overhand knot. Trim the ends leaving a small tail so that the Rexlace will not unravel.
