This one starts out pretty easy but step 5 is harder to follow.

When you tighten a decorative knot like this you follow the strand around and pull out the slack each time it crosses under a crossing point.  The photos show this sequence. It is easier to understand if you have an actual knot in front of you rather than just a photo.  Tony
