Candy Corn Design Tutorial

1. Pick 4 different colors. (The example uses yellow, orange, black & white). You will need 1 strand of yellow, 1 strand of orange, 3 strands of black & 1 strand of white.

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 have one loose string on each end. The string hanging loose on the left hand side will be referred to as string #0. The other loose string hanging on the right will be referred to as string #11. Separate strings by placing one string per slot. Note: Use the same color in slots 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 & 10 (black), slots 1 & 3 (yellow), slots 5 & 7 (orange) & slots 9 & 11 (white). This will align the strings of your bracelet pattern.
