Project Type: Make a Project

Time to complete: Under an hour

Bead Project Type: Bracelet

Difficulty Level: Beginner

Notes:

  • Before you begin making your friendship bracelet, you should know how to make a Right Hand Double Knot and Left Hand Double Knot. You can see these instructions at myfbm.com.
  • These instructions teach you how to complete the pattern using My Friendship Bracelet Maker. However, the pattern can be completed without the loom as well.
     

Instructions:

  1. Pick up to five threads (the more colors you choose, the wider your bracelet will be).
     
  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. Separate strings by placing one string per slot. Note: Use the same color in slot 1 & 10, 2 & 9, 3 & 8, etc. This will align the colors of the arrow.
     
  5. Hold string #1 with your right hand and string #2 with your left hand; loop string #1 in front making a number “4."
     
  6. While holding string #1 & #2, continue the steps to form a right handed double knot. After double knot is complete, move #2 string to #1 slot, while holding string #1 in hand. Take string #1 (still in your hand) and make the same right handed double knot around string #3. After double knot is complete, move string #3 to the #2 slot. Continue to tie right handed double knots on string #4 and then string #5. After making right handed double knots on string #5, place string #5 in #4 slot. Then place string #1 (in your hand) in the #5 slot.
     
  7. Hold string #10 with your right hand and string #9 with your left hand; loop string #10 in front making a backwards or flipped number “4."
     
  8. While holding string #10 and #9, continue the steps to form a left handed double knot. After double knot is complete, move #9 string to #10 slot, while holding string #10 in hand. Take string #10 (still in your hand) and make the same left handed double knot around string #8. After double knot is complete, move string #8 to #9 slot. Continue to tie left handed double knots on string #7 and then string #6. After making left handed double knots on string #6, place string #6 in #7 slot. Then place string #10 (in your hand) in the #6 slot.
     
  9. Hold string #5 and string #6 and tie two simple knots (just like the knot when you’re tying your shoes). Then replace strings in slots #5 and #6.
     
  10. When you have completed step 9, you have finished your first arrow! Repeat steps 5 through 9 with your new strings in place and watch your bracelet grow!
     
  11. When you think your bracelet is long enough to fit around your wrist, hold three strings from slots #1, #2, and #3 with your left hand and three from slots #8, #9, and #10 with your right hand. Braid the three strings from your left hand and right hand with the four strings left in slots in #4, #5, #6, and #7.
     
  12. Take the braided strings and tie two basic knots at the end of your friendship bracelet. (Learn how to finish your friendship bracelet with knots or beads by visiting myfbm.com.)
     
  13. Unclip your friendship bracelet from the butterfly clip and cut off the excess braided section. Your bracelet is ready to wear or share!
