## Step 1: How to Begin:

Order strings 1 1 2 2 3 3

1 = yellow

2 = pink

3 = blue

1 = yellow

2 = pink

3 = blue

## Step 2: Note:

Tape as you go. The ends will curl up and taping the sides down will help flatten it out.

## Step 3: Forward Knot

Use the left-most string (yellow) and make 5 forward knots (1 yellow, 1 pink, 1 pink, 1 blue, 1 blue)

Now the order should be 1 2 2 3 3 1

Use the second yellow and make 5 forward knots (1 pink, 1 pink, 1 blue, 1 blue, 1 yellow)

Now the order should be 2 2 3 3 1 1

Repeat these steps with the 2 pinks and 2 blues

Now the order should be 1 2 2 3 3 1

Use the second yellow and make 5 forward knots (1 pink, 1 pink, 1 blue, 1 blue, 1 yellow)

Now the order should be 2 2 3 3 1 1

Repeat these steps with the 2 pinks and 2 blues

## Step 4: Forward Backward Knot

Using the second blue string (last one you used) make a backward knot on the other blue string.

## Step 5: Backward

Use the same blue string to make 4 backward knots (1 pink, 1 pink, 1 yellow, 1 yellow)

Now the order should be 3 1 1 2 2 3

Use the right-most blue string to make 5 backward knots (1 pink, 1 pink, 1 yellow, 1 yellow, 1 blue)

Now the order should be 3 3 1 1 2 2

Now make 5 backward knots with the 2 yellows and 2 pinks.

Now the order should be 1 1 2 2 3 3

Now the order should be 3 1 1 2 2 3

Use the right-most blue string to make 5 backward knots (1 pink, 1 pink, 1 yellow, 1 yellow, 1 blue)

Now the order should be 3 3 1 1 2 2

Now make 5 backward knots with the 2 yellows and 2 pinks.

Now the order should be 1 1 2 2 3 3

## Step 6: Backward Forward Knot

Using the second yellow string (the one you just used) make a forward knot on the other yellow.

Using the same string make 4 more forward knots (1 pink, 1 pink, 1 blue, 1 blue)

The order should now be 1 2 2 3 3 1 .

Using the same string make 4 more forward knots (1 pink, 1 pink, 1 blue, 1 blue)

The order should now be 1 2 2 3 3 1 .

## Step 7: Repeat

Repeat steps 3-6 until you reach desired length.
