- Put C cross D and move it right, and move D left.
- Put E cross C and move it left.
- Put B cross D and E and move it right.
- Put F cross B and C and move it left.
- Put A cross D, E and F and move it right.
- Put G cross A, B and C and move it left, and now it is the basic shape of seven-string flat braided leather.
- Put D cross E, F and G, and move it right, and we move the rightmost string, C.
