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 how to make the Arrow Pattern for part of this bracelet.

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 butterfly 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.
