"The centre of the star is now reached, so take the last leader of the first point (left-hand side) and make a macrame knot with it upon the present leader, still holding it towards the left, and work knots upon it with the 7th, 6th, 5th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, and 1st threads; take the next thread from the centre, the 7th, and work knots on it with the 6th, 5th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 1st, and 8th threads; then use the 6th as leader, working knots with the 5th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 1st, 7th, and 8th thread.

Then take the 9th thread (counting from left to right), sloping it towards the right, and work knots on it with the 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, and 16th threads; then take the next two threads, 10th and 11th, in turn, as leaders, and work knots upon them as before. This completes the star.

Hold the 1st thread in right hand, sloping it towards the right, and work macrame knots on it with each of the other threads in turn, the 2nd. 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th. Macrame knots are worked in exactly the same manner as the threads are knotted on the 2nd foundation cord.

Then take the 2nd thread, which is now the outside one on the left-hand side, and work knots on it by all the other threads in turn; then take the 3rd and repeat the process, then the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th.
