BEFORE YOU BEGIN your friendship bracelet pattern, know how to make the Right Hand Double Knot and Left Hand Double Knot. You will also need to know the Single Right Single Left Hand Knot and Single Left Single Right Hand Knot.
1. Pick up to 5 threads (the more colors you choose the wider your bracelet will be).
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. Separate strings by placing one string per slot.
5. Hold string #1 with your right hand and string #2 with your left hand, loop string #1 in front making a number “4”.
6. While holding string #1 & #2, continue the steps to form a right handed double knot. After double knot is complete move #2 string to #1 slot, while holding string #1 in hand. Take string #1 and make the same right handed double knot around string #3. After double knot is complete move string #3 to the #2 slot. Continue to tie right handed double knots on string #4 thru #10 with string #1 until you finish the row. When you completed tying the double knot on string #10 place string #1into slot #10 on your MYFBM.
