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.

1. Pick 3 different colors. (The example uses dark blue, dark pink & yellow). You will need 4 strands of blue, 2 strands of pink & 1 strand of yellow

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, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 & 11 (blue), slots 2, 6 & 10 (pink) & slots 4 & 8 (yellow). The extra blue & extra pink strand will both need to be cut close to your knot. This will align the strings of your bracelet pattern
