BEFORE YOU BEGIN your friendship bracelet pattern, you need to 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 2 different colors. (The example uses white & red). You will need 5 strands of white & 1 strand of 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 uses 12 strings which exceeds the amount of slots that the MYFBM holds. You will need to have a loose string on each end. The string hanging loose on the left hand side will be referred to as #0. The loose string on the right will be referred to as #11. Separate strings by placing one string per slot. Note: Use the same color in slots 0, 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 & 11 (white) & slots 3 & 8 (red).
