Step 1: make sure you have your board, nails, and hammer. nail them into the shape as seen in the picture

Step 2: Wrap your rope around the nails as shown, making sure to leave a little bit of extra at the end.

Step 3: Bring in a second piece of rope(this is where most of your rope will be used). lay it next to one of the ends of the rope as shown in the diagram.

Step 4: wrap the second rope around the first, along the side with the extra length of rope

Step 5: Start to weave. make sure to go: Over, Under, Over, Under... and so on.. it'll take you a while..

Step 6: Weave! WEAVE!!!! WEAVE!!!!!!!

Step 7: you can take your "waraji" off your board now.. if you havent already

Step 8: remember how you started this off? well you're pretty much gonna finish it the same way. wrap around and stick the extra inside the wrap you're making now..
