Secure by taping to table top at fold. You could also use a clipboard. Pull both 18″ strands taut and tape down ends. These will become strands 2 & 3 in the diagrams below.
Making the knots:
Cross strand 1 over strands 2 & 3 and under strand 4.

Bring strand 4 under strands 2 & 3, and then up through the loop created by strand 1. Tighten.

When you reach the desired length, make a knot to match the other end. Remove tape. Trim ends, leaving enough to tie on wrist after pulling half the strands through the loop.
