Again, hold the work in your hand such that the clapper loop is pointed downward, and the 8 strands are draped over the hand.
Divide the 8 strands into 4 pairs (A, B, C & D).
Form a Crown knot (Ashley’s #2928) with the 4 doubled pairs. Form a bight in pair A, bringing the strand ends across the bell pull, resting between pairs B & C.
Bring pair B across pair A and resting between pairs C & D.Bring pair C across pair B and resting between pairs D & A.Bring pair D across pair C and tuck through the bight in pair A.
Pull the strand ends firmly to snug up the knot and keep symmetry.
A firm, tight Crown knot gives you a neat, tight start for the Double Diamond
