Just the knot I was searching for! How did you end it? What sort of clasp technique are you using or do you recommend?

Actually, in the fisrt step, when folding the strings in half, we'll get a loop and i'll alwasy consider it as part of my closure. So, in the end, just tie one or two overhand knots with the leftovers. And this contributs an natural ending for a string bracelet : )

This didn't work out for me at all!! I used wool do you think that would've made a big difference

I think it may make a little difference. If the wools you use are too thick, you may not reach the desired effect. You can try this with nylon thread next time. Hope it can help you. :)
