When using a link, cut the anchor cord in half, and attach each half to the link with a lark's head knot.
Cut your working cord in half, too. Pick a side, begin knotting and work your way to the end, then repeat on other other side.
Tight knots make it difficult to sew the tails back in, and you can break your needle. Pliers can help to get the needle through. 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 original blog article, but this leaves little to work with at the end, so I increased it to 18".
The sliding clasp can be made longer as desired to fill any gaps left when pulled snug.
The entire bracelet is adjustable. The knots can be scrunched together or pulled apart on the anchor cords in order to adjust length.
I separated the cord at the ends with a needle to form a little tassel.
