How to lace up two selvedge edges, without eyelet holes:

Thread your cord onto a tapestry needle. (Photo 1)

On left selvedge edge, insert tapestry needle through 1 strand of yarn at edge, on the desired row, from back to front. (Photo 2) Pull cord through.

On right selvedge edge, insert tapestry needle through 1 strand of yarn on the cooresponding row, from front to back. (Photo 3)

Pull cord through and hold the two ends of cord together so the center of the cord is through the selvedge edges. Set aside the half of cord that is not currently on tapestry needle.

Skip a few rows on the left selvedge edge, then insert tapestry needle into the following row. (Photo 4) Note how many rows are skipped, and be consistent throughout. Pull cord through.

On the right selvedge edge, skip the number of rows previously skipped, skip the cooresponding row, then skip the number of rows previously skipped again. Insert tapestry needle into the following row. (Photo 5)

Continue threading cord into left, then right edges, into cooresponding rows to align with the previously threaded cord. (Photo 8)

When finished, it should look like Photo 9 with more or less crosses, depending on the length of your pieces.
