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

2. Align string, fold in half, and tie knot ½ inch from fold forming a loop.

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.
