    I understand this is a very obvious question, but I just learned to string today, and there are still a few things I am confused on.

    First, when starting the mains (one piece), I feed both sides through the middle, clamp one side near the frame, and then tension the other side. I then keep going and clamping on that side until I am done. Is this correct, with how I start the mains?

    For the crosses, I am a bit confused on how to start. The head pro who showed me did not use a starting knot, i know that. How do I start the crosses without a starting knot. Please be specific as possible, as I really know nothing at this point! Thanks, comments are greatly appreciated :)
