1. Pick 4 different color threads for this pattern. (The example uses pink, black, white & green).

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 clip.

4. Separate strings by placing one string per slot. Note: Use the same color in slots 2 & 9 (pink), 3 & 8 (black), 4 & 7 (white) & 5 & 6 (green). This will align the colors of your bracelet pattern.

5. To start, you will need to make 4 single Arrows (see Arrow Pattern for instructions). One with each of your 4 colors in order (pink, black, white & green).

6. Make another Arrow with your pink strings. This will be the start of your diamond.

7. Take string #2 (black) and make 2 right hand double knots. One each, on string #3 (white) & one on string #4 (green). String #2 (black) will now be in slot 4.

8. Take string #9 (black) from the opposite side and make 2 left hand double knots. One each, on string #8 (white) & one on string #7 (green). String #9 (black) will now be in slot 7.

9. Now take string #2 (white) and make a right hand double knot with string #3 (green). String #2 (white) will now be in slot 3.

10. On the opposite side take string #9 (white) and make a left hand double knot with string #8 (green). String #9 (white) will now be in slot 8.

11. With your center strings #5 & #6 (both pink) make a right hand double knot.

12. Now take string #6 (pink) and make 3 right hand double knots. One each, on string #7 (black), string #8 (white) & string #9 (green). String #6 (pink) will now be in slot 9.

13. Use string #5 (pink) and make 3 left hand double knots. One each, on string #4 (black), string #3 (white) & string #2 (green). String #5 (pink) will now be in slot 2.

14. Both pink strings should be in your outer slots 2 & 9 at this point.

15. Take string #5 (black) and make a 3 right hand double knots. One each, on string #6 (black), string #7 (white) & string #8 (green). String #5 (black) will now be in slot 8.

16. Take your new string #5 (black) and make 2 left hand double knots. One each, one string #4 (white) & string #3 (green). String #5 (black) will now be in slot 3.

17. Now take your center strings in slots 5 & 6 (both white) and make a right hand double knot.

18. Take string #6 (white) and make a right hand double knot with string #7 (green). String #6 (white) will now be in slot 7.

19. Take string #5 (white) and make a left hand double knot with string #4 (green). String #5 (white) will now be in slot 4.

20. Your center strings in slots 5 & 6 should both be green. Join these two strings with a right hand double knot. String #5 will now be in slot 6 and string #6 in slot 5.

21. Take string #2 (pink) and make 3 right hand double knots. One each, on string #3 (black), string #4 (white) & string #5 (green). String #2 (pink) will now be in slot 5.

22. Take string #9 (pink) and make 3 left hand double knots. One each, on string # 8 (black), string #7 (white) and string #6 (green). String #9 (pink) will now be in slot 6.

23. Join your center pink strings from slots 5 & 6 to complete your diamond.

24. Repeat steps 7 – 23 to continue your diamond pattern.

25. Once you bracelet is long enough to fit your wrist you can make a few arrows at the end of your bracelet just like you did in the beginning. Then hold 3 strings from slots 2-4 with your left hand and 3 strings from slots 7-9 with your right hand. Braid the strings from your left and right hands with the 2 remaining center strings.

20. Take the braided strings and tie two basic knots at the end of your friendship bracelet.
