Beads can be strung onto the bottom of the anchor cords before anchoring to the board, and slid into place as you work
Tight knots make it difficult to sew the tails back into them, and you can break your needle. You will most likely need to use pliers to get the needle through. Make sure to sew the tail back through the entire section of knots to ensure that it doesn't back out.
The length of cord to cut for the clasp says 12" in the tutorial, but this leaves little to work with at the end, so I increased it to 18".
Separating the ends of the cord with a needle makes a nice tassel.
