Adding more string if you run out
If you run out of string before you finish all the rows, don't worry. You can just tie more on :)

To do this cut a new piece of string, and hold it together with the old string, with the new string on top.

Then knot the ends together. Triple knotting is best, because you don't want to risk having the knot come undone.

One you've triple knotted it, trim the excess string from the knot. Then, as you continue to add beads, pull the knot inside of a bead to hide it.

When you're finished - tying off the first loose end

When you have put on the last bead of the last row (row 19), your cuff should look like this, with two loose ends - one at the top, and one at the bottom.

Take the loose end at the top of the cuff (you can tell which is the top because of the direction of the pattern) and pull it through two more beads. This is just to make sure the beads are as tight as they can be.33.jpg



Then take the end, and push it down through the closest gap.

Then pull the end of string up through the loop you just made.

If you pull the end tightly (as far as it will go), you will make a knot. The photo below doesn't depict the knot, but you should know what it will look like ;D make at least one - preferably two - more knots using the same loop method.36.jpg



Once you've tied 2-3 more knots, you can cut off the excess string from the knot, and pull the knot inside the closest bead to hide it from view.

Tying off the bottom loose end
Now for the bottom end. The bottom loose end should be coming out of a yellow bead, and the yellow bead should be a bit wobbly since the string hasn't gone through any other beads.38.jpg



Pull the loose end through three beads to better secure it.

Then you can go ahead and tie 2-3 knots using the same loop method that you used for the top loose end.

Trim the excess string from the knot, and pull it through a bead to hide it. Congratulations, you've finished the cuff :D
