This is a video on how to make the non-stitch.
The non is just like the quad,
the only difference is the quad is a two by two,
and the non is a three by three.
So while the quad uses four pieces of gimp,
the non-used six. If you try the non and find it too difficult go and
try the quad first, and make this,
and then come back and do the non.
Let's get started. You will need six pieces of gimp that are all the same
length. Mine are each five feet long.
Start by taking one of your pieces and bend it at its center,
and then drop that over your finger.
Take the strand at the back,
wrap around to make a second loop.
Take another piece and bend it at its center,
drop that over your finger, take the strand at the back and wrap it around
to make a second loop.
Take a third piece, bend it at its center,
drop it over your finger, take the strand at the back and wrap it around
to make a second loop.
Take another piece and bring it under all six of these loops.
Then pull it through until you reach its center.
Take the strand on the left and bring it across the top of your finger,
going over under, over under, and over under.
Then take the strand on the right and bring it across the bottom of your
finger going over under, over under,
and over under. Now pull those strands down on your finger so you can make
room to do the same thing again above.
Take another piece of gimp and bring it under all of your loops,
then pull it through until you r each its center.
Then with one we'll take this strand on the left,
bring it across the top going over under,
over under, over under. We'll take this strand on the right and bring it across
the bottom going over under, over under,
and over under. Then push down those strands to make room for your last piece
of gimp. Take your last piece and at the top of your finger run it
under all six loops. Pull it through until you reach its center.
Then we'll do this process again.
Take the strand on the left,
bring it across the top going over under,
over under, and over under, and take the strand on the right,
bring it across the bottom, going over under,
over under, and over under.
Then slowly take the whole thing off your finger and tighten the strands.
Now you've officially started. Now that you've started doing the stitch,
it's just like doing the quad stitch.
The only difference is that you have one extra strand on each side.
Just keep repeating that until you're ready to finish.
So now I'm ready to finish,
and I'm going to finish this lanyard European style,
which means using super glue to finish it.
Super glue is dangerous if you use it incorrectly.
So if you are under eighteen you need to have an adult with you to
do this part. If you don't want to use super glue you can finish American
style which involves taking the strands and bringing them up through the hole at the
center. You can watch my video on the quad stitch finishing to see how to
do that. It's the same thing as this.
But it's a two by two instead of a three by three.
Now this lanyard, with my starting stitch I have a lot of slack in the
first stitch that I've got to keychain to.
So I'm not going to create a hole for a keychain at the top.
I'm just going to add super glue straight on as it is.
Then I'll let that sit for 15 minutes and then cut off the strands at
the end. So, now my glue has dried and I've cut off the ends.
I've also added a keychain ring to the bottom.
So I can use it as a keychain,
and that is it.
