You go over the main
under the main
Through the loop
Over the main
under the main
Through both loops

You have to pull the inside (first loop) to get it tight. If you simply pull the end of string you will end up with alot of slack you cant get rid of. By pulling the inner (first) loop you can get it alot snugger. Then pull the outside (last) loop which is the end of the string to fisnish up.

This has a few pictures to get a little better understanding what Im talking about.
