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. To begin your friendship bracelet, pick 2 different colors. (The example uses light pink & dark blue). You will need 5 strands of light pink & 2 strands of dark blue.

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 uses 12 strings which is exceeds the amount of slots that the MYFBM holds. You will need to have one string loose on each end. The string hanging loose on the left hand side will be referred to as #0 & the one loose string on the right will be referred to as #11. Separate strings by placing one string per slot. Note: Use the same color in slots 0, 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10 & 11 (pink) & slots 2, 5 & 7 (blue). There will be one extra blue and one extra pink strand that will need to be cut close to your knot. This will align the colors of your bracelet pattern.
