This is an intermediate difficulty bracelet, requiring a knowledge of forward and backward knots along with right-left and left-right transitory knots.

- forward knot: place the left string over the right and knot through twice

- backward knot: place the right string over the left and knot through twice

- right-left knot: tie one stitch of a forward knot followed by one of a backward knot

- left-right knot: one stitch of a backward knot followed by one of a forward knot

P. S. A. After both transition knots, the strings should finish in their initial position.

You will need...

- 5 different colors

- One 64inch strand of each color

Nice work! How did you come up with this design? Also, you should post the finished bracelet as the main image so that people browsing the site can see the thing you made.
