  1. Find the halfway point of the cord. Double knot it onto the keyring or lanyard hook.
  2. Begin weaving the beads onto the cord, following the pattern.
  3. After finishing the critter, tie a double knot in the end of the cord.
  4. Three or four beads can be strung onto the end of the cords as a finishing touch.
