If anyone wants to do a loop, whether its teardrop or normal triangle end, here is how:
Cut all you string and double them how you would normally do it. Then what you have to do is make sure the all of your purple strings stay on one side and all your green ones stay on the other side. So, to do that, take one of your purple strings and fold it in half. There should be a small hoop, which you would then thread one of the green strings through, then fold that one in half. Your strings are now intertwined. Do this for the rest of the strings, including black and white. Next, line up all your new string keeping all the purple on one side and all the green on the other. The spot where they are intertwined should be in the middle. From that spot, start making your loop. Then you could continue how you would normally. Masha Knots has a video. The video is called "Making a loop with odd numbers of thread" so exactly what she does, but for this pattern do not separate the strings!!! Dont separate the black string in half like she shows, just skip that part.
I hope this helped someone, and if you have any questions you can just message me 😊
