You need to have a blessing from your priest to learn (at least that is how it works for us).

I learned to tie them from this video available from Firebird for US$19:95:

It is an excellent instructional video, very thorough, and shows the different ways you can make the Cross for the prayer rope.

We sought our priests blessing to learn. He gave it, but with the qualification that the ropes are only for our own use, not to sell. Many Monastries make a great deal of their income from prayer ropes, so to make/sell them as laity we would be taking away from them.
