After the whole ring is filled, we tie the ends of the threads. The short tail is now left alone, it will be useful to us later. From the glomerulus we uncoil around three meters of the iris, turn off into a small hitch to make it comfortable to work. We begin to weave a net: we put the thread in a loop and wrap it around the ring, put the next loop ... Look at the photo and everything will immediately clear up.

When the whole circle is filled with loops, you will need to switch to following.To do this, we wrap the thread around the first loop and fasten it in a knot in the middle of this loop. We weave the next circle in exactly the same way, except for the fact that the loops are now attached not to the ring, but to the middle of the loops of the first circle.
