#Bring together the outside bands. These bands are curved on 1 side. Bring them together so that the rounded edges are facing out. This will form a rounded diamond shape where the knot will go.<ref>https://ift.tt/31wiuws>

#*For a 4-band ring, there will be 2 outside bands. For a 7- or 8-band ring, there will be 4 outside bands. Bring them together so that the 2 bands that curve in the same direction fit together. All 4 bands will make a diamond shape when they are lined up.

#*The process is very similar for a 6-band ring. A 6-band ring will have either 2 or 4 bands that form a diamond.

#Rotate the inside bands so that they hang by the knot. Hold the outside bands together with one hand. Using the other hand, rotate the inside bands so that they are hanging from the outside bands by the bent knot part of the ring.<ref>https://ift.tt/31wiuws>

#Locate the band or bands with a groove and hold it firmly in place. Depending on how many inside bands there are, 1 or 2 will have a groove in the knot. This groove will keep all of the other bands together. Hold them firmly with 2 fingers.<ref>https://youtu.be/huoFQSu7Cvo?t=142</ref>

#Cross the 2 inside bands over each other by the knot. With the grooved ring firmly in place, cross the other inside band over the top of it. The band will fit perfectly into the groove. You will be able to see the X through the diamond created by the outside rings.<ref>https://youtu.be/huoFQSu7Cvo?t=167</ref>

#*All of the interlocking parts should fit perfectly together. If they don't, the first 2 bands probably weren't aligned correctly.
