**BEFORE YOU BEGIN your friendship bracelet pattern, know how to make the Right Hand Double Knot and Left Hand Double Knot.**

1. Pick 3 different colors. (The example uses pink, green & yellow). You will need 2 strands of pink, 2 strand of green and 2 strand of yellow.

2. Align string, fold in half, and tie knot ½ inch from fold forming a loop.

3. Attach your ½ inch loop to MYFBM under the butterfly clip.

4. This pattern has 12 strings and My Friendship Bracelet Maker has enough holders for only 10 strings. This means you will have 2 loose strings at each end, one to the left of slot 1 and one to the right of slot 10. The strings hanging loose will be referred as #0 and #11. Separate strings by placing one string per slot. Note: Use the same color in slots 0,2,4 & 6 (pink), slots 1,3,5 & 7 (green) and slots 8,9,10 & 11 (yellow). This will align the colors of your bracelet pattern.
