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. You will use a total of 5 strands. (The example uses 2 strands of dark blue, 2 white & 1 strand of red).*
* For larger wrists or making ankle bracelets we strongly recommend using full length strands. In this case you would use 4 strands of dark blue, 4 strands of white & 2 strands of red. Click here for instructions on how to tie your strings together to make your bracelet longer, or make a necklace.

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. Note: Use the same color in slots 1, 2, 9 & 10 (dark blue), slots 3, 4, 7 & 8 (white) & slots 5 & 6 (red). This will align the colors of your bracelet pattern.

5. To begin, take string #9 (blue) and make a right hand double knot with string #10 (blue). String #9 (blue) will now be in slot 10.

6. Take string #7 (white) and make 3 right hand double knots. One each, on string #8 (white), string #9 (blue) and another on string #10 (blue). String #7 (white) will now be in slot 10.

7. Use string #5 (red) and make 5 right hand double knots. One each, on string #6 (red), string #7 (white), string #8 (blue), string #9 (blue) & string #10 (white). String #5 (red) will now be in slot 10.

8. Take string #3 (white) and make 7 right hand double knots. On each, on string #4 (white), string #5 (red), string #6 (white), string #7 (blue), string #8 (blue), string #9 (white) & string #10 (red). String #3 (white) will now be in slot 10.

10. With your new string #1(blue) again make 9 right hand double knots. One each, on string #2 (white), string #3 (red), string #4 (white), string #5 (blue), string #6 (blue), string #7 (white), string #8 (red), string #9 (white) & string #10 (blue). String #1 (blue) will now be in slot 10.

12. Again use string #1 (now red) and make 5 right hand double knots. One each, on string #2 (white), string #3 (blue), string #4 (blue), string #5 (white) & string #6 (red). String #1 (red) will now be in slot 6.
