STEP 1
Cut a 3-foot length of stringing material. Thread a beading needle, leaving a 6-inch tail.
STEP 2
Pick up four beads. Pull the thread tight to create circle A, then tie a surgeon's knot. Trim the tail to approximately 1/2 inch length.

Pass the needle through an adjacent bead. This is now bead A1, as noted on the diagram.
STEP 3
Pick up three beads then pass through A1. Pull tight to create circle B.
STEP 4

Pass through A2, pick up two beads then pass through B1 and A1. Pull tight to create circle C.
STEP 5
Pass through A3, pick up two beads, then pass through C1 and A3. Pull tight to create circle D.
STEP 6
Pass through A4, pass up through B3, pick up one bead then pass down through D1. Pull tight to create circle E.
STEP 7
Pass through A3, A2 and A1, then pass up through B3. Pass through E1, D1, C2 and B2 twice, pulling tight to create circle F (the top of the cube).
STEP 8
To lengthen the weave, circle F becomes circle A for the next cube, then repeat Steps 3 - 7 until the desired length is reached.
