1. Pick 3 different colors. You will use 2 strands of each color you choose. (This example uses 2 strands of red, 2 strands of white, and 2 strands of blue).

2. Align strings, fold in half, and tie knot ½ inch from fold forming a loop. Attach your ½ inch loop to MYFBM under the butterfly clip.

3. Separate strings by placing one string per slot. Note: Use red in slots 1, 2, 3, 4, then white in 5, 6, 7, and blue in 8, 9, 10. You will have one extra strand of white and one extra strand of blue. Cut off these extra strands near your starting knot.

4. Take string #1 and make a right hand double knot with string #2. String #1 will now be in slot 2.

5. Take string #3 and make a right hand double knot with string #4. String #3 will now be in slot 4.

6. Take string #5 and make a right hand double knot with string #6. String #5 will now be in slot 6.

8. Take string #9 and make a right hand double knot with string #10. String #9 will now be in slot 10.
