Step 1: Starting

Choose as many colors and as many strands as you like (I recommend 3+).
The more strands the thicker your bracelet will be. (Mine has 8 Strands)
To figure out the length of your strands I suggest wrapping a strand around your wrist 3 times.
After you have cut and measured all your strands, tie a knot leaving a 1/2 inch so you can tie it in the end.

Step 2:

Use your clamp the clip your knot into place.
Separate the strands and put them in the order you will like the colors to show.

Step 3:

Grab your 1st strand with your right hand and 2nd strand with your left. Loop strand 1 in front of strand 2 making a number "4".

Step 4:

Loop strand 1 inside the "4" as shown

Tie strand 1 all the way to the top of strand 2.
This is called a forward knot.
Do this twice on every strand using Strand 1.
When you have done this take your new Strand 1 and repeat.
Repeat with all strand and you will slowly start seeing the pattern.

Step 6:

When you have reached desired length stop.
You can make a knot here or you're welcome to braid it like I did. Then knot it.
You can now unclip your bracelet.

Step 7:
