To achieve each time equal rings, a few toothpicks or matchsticks will do a good job. Here I used 3 toothpicks.

Put them together with a piece of thread or scotch band at 1/3 from one end.

Let 20-25 cm thread long at the beginning, turn the thread around the toothpicks 4- 5 times.

Cut the other end of thread 20-25 cmtr long. Put a needle at this end.

Do one or two  feston points vertically under all 5 threads and pull the ring gently out.

Do other feston points around the ring, taking care to keep equal  thread tension .
