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 three different colors. (The example uses red, white, and green.) You will need one strand of each color: red, white, and green. If you want a wider bracelet, you will need to add additional strands.
     
  2. Align string, fold in half, and tie knot 1/2 inch from fold, forming a loop.
     
  3. Attach your 1/2-inch loop to MYFBM under the butterfly clip.
     
  4. Separate strings by placing one string per slot. Note: Use the same color in slots 3 and 4 (red), slots 5 and 6 (white), and slots 7 and 8 (green). This will align the colors of your bracelet pattern.
     
  5. To begin, take string #3 (red) and make five right hand double knots, one each on string #4 (red), string #5 (white), string #6 (white), string #7 (green), and string #8 (green). String #3 (red) will now be in slot 8.
     
  6. Take string #3 (red) and make five right hand double knots, one each on string #4 (white), string #5 (white), string #6 (green), string #7 (green), and string #8 (red). String #3 (red) will now be in slot 8.
     
  7. Take string #3 (white) and make five right hand double knots, one each on string #4 (white), string #5 (green), string #6 (green), string #7 (red), and string #8 (red). String #3 (white) will now be in slot 8.
     
  8. Take string #3 (white) and make five right hand double knots, one each on string #4 (green), string #5 (green), string #6 (red), string #7 (red), and string #8 (white). String #3 (white) will now be in slot 8.
     
  9. Take string #3 (green) and make five right hand double knots, one each on string #4 (green), string #5 (red), string #6 (red), string #7 (white), and string #8 (white). String #3 (green) will now be in slot 8.
     
  10. Take string #3 (green) and make five right hand double knots, one each on string #4 (red), string #5 (red), string #6 (white), string #7 (white), and string #8 (green). String #3 (green) will now be in slot 8.
     
  11. Take string #8 (green) and make five left hand double knots, one each on string #7 (green), string #6 (white), string #5 (white), string #4 (red), and string #3 (red). String #8 (green) will now be in slot 3.
     
  12. Take string #8 (green) and make five left hand double knots, one each on string #7 (white), string #6 (white), string #5 (red), string #4 (red), and string #3 (green). String #8 (green) will now be in slot 3.
     
  13. Take string #8 (white) and make five left hand double knots, one each on string #7 (white), string #6 (red), string #5 (red), string #4 (green), and string #3 (green). String #8 (white) will now be in slot 3.
     
  14. Take string #8 (white) and make five left hand double knots, one each on string #7 (red), string #6 (red), string #5 (green), string #4 (green), and string #3 (white). String #8 (white) will now be in slot 3.
     
  15. Take string #8 (red) and make five left hand double knots, one each on string #7 (red), string #6 (green), string #5 (green), string #4 (white), and string #3 (white). String #8 (red) will now be in slot 3.
     
  16. Take string #8 (red) and make five left hand double knots, one each on string #7 (green), string #6 (green), string #5 (white), string #4 (white), and string #3 (red). String #8 (red) will now be in slot 3.
     
  17. At this point your pattern will now repeat itself. Repeat steps 5-16 to continue the pattern until your bracelet is long enough to fit your wrist.
     
  18. Once your bracelet is long enough to fit your wrist, take the strings from slots 3 and 4 in your left hand and the strings from slots 7 and 8 in your right hand and braid with the remaining two center strings.
     
  19. 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.
     
  20. Unclip your friendship bracelet from the butterfly clip and cut off the excess braided section. Your bracelet is ready to wear or share!
