Notes:

  • Before you begin making your friendship bracelet, you should know how to make a Right Hand Double Knot, Left Hand Double Knot, Single Right Single Left Hand Knot and Single Left Single Right Hand 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 purple, lt. blue, black and white). You will need 1 strand of purple, 1 strand of lt. blue, 1 strand of black and 1 strand of white.
     
  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 & 9 (purple), slots 3 & 8 (lt. blue) & slots 4 & 7(white) & slots 5 & 6 (black). This will align the colors of your bracelet pattern. This pattern will start off like the arrow pattern.
     
  5. To begin, take string #2 (purple) and make 3 right hand double knots. One each, on string #3 (lt. blue), string #4 (white) and string #5 (black). String #2 (purple) will now be in slot 5.
     
  6. Take string #9 (purple) and make 4 left hand double knots. One each, on string #8 (lt. blue), string #7 (white), string #6 (black) and string #5 (purple). String #9 (purple) will now be in slot 5.

  8. Take string #9 (lt. blue) and make 4 left hand double knots. One each, on string #8 (white), string #7 (black), string #6 (purple) and string #5 (lt. blue). String #9 (lt. blue) will now be in slot 5.
