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

1. Pick 4 different color threads for this pattern. (The example uses 2 dark blue, 2 light blue, 2 yellow, and 2 red).
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 is going to use 12 threads. One thread will go to the left of slot 1 and be referred to as string #0 and the other will go to the right of slot 10 and be referred to as string #11. The first color will be in #0, #1, #2 (dark blue), the second in #3, #5, #7 (light blue), the third in #4, #6, #8 (yellow), and fourth in #9, #10, #11 (red). There will be 4 remaining strings (1 of each color). Simply cut them off close to the knot, you will not need these strings.
