Create a square stitch after the finished spiral or diamond stitch. You should have about 1 foot of loose strands at the end of the weave.
Leave the square stitch loose.
Bring the hook at the end of the boondoggle weave up and through the loose square stitch.
Pull it through 8 inches.
Tighten the square stitch, pulling it snug.
Create another square stitch, around the braid in the middle. Pull snug.
Continue making square stitches until there are only 4 inches of loose boondoggle strands remaining.
Make a completion stitch to finish the lanyard.
