BEFORE YOU BEGIN your friendship bracelet pattern, know how to make the Right Hand Double Knot and Left Hand Double Knot.

1. Pick 8 different colors. (The example uses orange, black, lime green, white, light blue, dark pink, yellow & dark purple). You will need 1 strand of each color listed.

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 slot 2 (orange), slot 3 (black), slot 4 (lime green), slot 5 (white), slot 6 (light blue) slot 7 (dark pink), slot 8 (yellow) & slot 9 (dark purple). You will have one extra strand of each color that you will need to cut close to your knot. If you don’t want to cut all the extra strings, you can put both strings of the same color in each slot and make your bracelet with double the thickness of thread. The texture of your bracelet will feel and look thicker. This is what I did in the example picture. This will align the strings of your bracelet pattern.
