Tying

Before moving to Step Three, you need to know how to tie off the ends of the cane strands on the underside. The cane must be wet to tie a tight, flat knot, so moisten the loose ends well. First, push the loose end of the cane strand under and through an adjacent loop. This loop is formed by the cane running from one hole to the next.

Pull the strand tight under the loop, making sure The strands latd down in S:ep Two simply lie on top ol the vertical strands already in place You don't the cane is flat and untwisted Then carry the weave at this point loose end back over the loop

Then bring the cane strand back under its own loop, pull the strand over, and back through the loop, and pull the knot thus formed tight. The knot should be tight and Hat. Position it so that it does not cover the hole. It takes a bit of practice to make good tie-offs. Don't hesitate to take poor knots apart and retie them until you are satisfied with their shape.

You don't need to tie off each strand as it is put in place, but you should stop weaving and secure the loose ends every so often. If there are too many loose ends hanging down, they interfere with the weaving.

Now run the end under the loop again, making sure that the cane is flat and untwisted
After pulling the end under the loop the second time, feed it through the loop it has formed and pul it tight. This makes a tight, flat knot. Moisten the cane with a sponge before tying off, since wet cane makes much better knots Clip ofl the end close to the knot after the tie is finished
