We begin by wrapping the leather strips all the way around our hoop. We do not tie the leather wrapping down with the leather, instead we use the waxed thread (or substitute). We tie one knot on the first wrap, and another knot when we have completed the circle. We tie the end of the waxed thread (or substitute) around the hoop where we tied the last piece of leather wrapping.

We begin to spiral our thread around the hoop leaving about two inches of thread between each wrap. We should have approximately 13 peaks when we complete our first round.

Now going in the center of the first space which we left (on the thread), spiral again. We must make sure that we pull the thread taught each time.
