Step 1: Getting Started

Picture of Getting Started

All you need to make this friendship bracelet is:
1. Embroidery floss or yarn
2. Tape
3. Scissors

Get four different colors of embroidery floss or yarn, and measure them all about 60 inches long.

Step 2:

Tie four strings in half and make a knot at the top. This gives you eight strings. Order them 12344321. 

Step 3:

This is the basic knot of aaaaallllllllll friendship bracelets. Hold the 1st string in your left hand, and the 2nd in your right. Take string 1 and cross it over 2, it should kind of look like a number four. Pull string 1 through the number four. Now pull the knot tight. 

Step 4:

Tie string #1 on 2,3,and 4, going from left to right.  Remember to tie two knots on each string!
Now take string 1 on the right side and do the same thing. Tie #1 on 2,3,and 4, going right to left.

The two strings of the same color should end up beside each other. Tie them in a double knot. Now start the process over with the next first color.

Repeat this step over and over until your bracelet is as long as you like!!

Your work is nice, but I'm sorry to say that I don't quite follow how you did this, maybe you could add more photos or drawn diagrams. A video would be extremely helpful, but these are just suggestions. For me it's hard to understand, especially since I've never made a friendship bracelet, but either way, keep up the good work.
