Basket/Bag Wrapping (Basket Zutsumi)

1. Tie corners "a" and "b" in a half-knot (crossing them only once). (The lower the half-knot is pulled, the longer the ends, the easier the bag will be to use later.)

2. Tie a ma-musubi knot with the "a" and "b" ends, leaving some space for the hand between it and the first half-knot.

3. Do the same for corners "c" and "d," creating the shape of a bag.
