6   Make a double knot with the first two cords from the back and the first two from the front. Make the knot around the two cords in the middle 4 cm from the last row of knots.
Guide step %d
7   Continue with the next cords, tying two cords from each side around the two middle ones to form a V-pattern. The front consists of six double knots.
Guide step %d

13   Tie the knot onto one bundle of cords and make the handle by tying double knots around three cords – around 6 cm from the last row of knots.
Guide step %d
14   Make the knotted piece with five double knots at a slight angle, as shown in the picture.
Guide step %d
15   Now gather the eight bundles of four cords each and use them to make the two handles of the bag.
Guide step %d
16   For the handle, you will need 2 x 2 m of cord for each side and 1 x 3 m for the top.
Guide step %d
17   The bundles of cords should result in a handle with a finished length of 29–30 cm. See the picture in step 22. Take a piece of 2 m cord and find the middle. Wrap the cord around the bundle of cords and use it to tie double knots around one bundle of cords in the handle.
Guide step %d
18   Repeat step 17. Make a total of 12 double knots around the four bundles of cord.
Guide step %d
