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 4 different colors. (The example uses dark purple, light pink, black & green. Using these colors will make it easier to follow the video.)
     
  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 slots 2 &3 (dark purple), slots 4 & 6 (light pink), slots 5 & 7 (black) & slots 8 & 9 (green). This will align the colors of your bracelet pattern.
     
  5. To begin, take string #4 (light pink) and make a right hand double knot with string #5 (black). String #4 (light pink) will now be in slot 5.
