Cut long tail to use for sewing ends together.
Turn work to the "wrong side". This will become the "right side". On bottom cord pinch in the middle and twist clockwise 180 degrees to make a loop. Pull cord above through the new loop and repeat twist. Repeat pulling through and twisting until all cords are now pulled through the one below and twisted.
Sew ends together with tapestry needle & tack down loop. Add button if desired.
