Thread final bead tip, hook pointing out from beads. (3) Use a needle to guide a knot snug against the bead tip. Tighten it up by pulling the two threads apart leaving no slack between beads. Tie enough knots making sure it is large enough not to pass through the bead tip. Check it by pulling on the bead tip.
