To make it easier for you to follow, I've used different colored hemp. The tan inside cords are the base strands. The red and blue outside cords are the knotting cords.

Place the blue knotting cord over the two tan base strands and under the red knotting cord. Then weave the red knotting cord under the two tan base strands and up through the loop you formed with the blue knotting cord. Tighten your half knot by pulling on the knotting cords.

To finish your square knot hemp bracelet tie an overhand knot and see how it fits into the half-inch loop you made. If it's too small just tie another overhand knot on top of the first one. When your finishing knot is big enough trim the excess hemp cords.
