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.

Note: Use the same color in slots 0, 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 & 11 (white) & slots 3 & 8 (red).
