How do you secure a yoga mat?

How do you tie a string on a yoga mat?
To do this, start with the left side and make a “4” pattern with your left outside rope, laying it on top of the middle ropes. Then bring the right long rope over the left rope you just folded over, and push it under and through the large hole of the “4”. Pull it tight, and your first square knot is complete!
Why is my yoga mat falling apart?
