Step 1: Colors
Pick how many colors of your choice and cut off 44 inches off of each color.
Step 2: Fold
Fold the strings in half.
Step 3: Knot
Tie a knot with a loop at one of the ends then, if needed you can tape it down to a surface.
Step 4: First Color
Gather all the strings of your first color.
Step 5: "4"
Make a "4" by using your less dominant hand as a pillar. Then lay your color on top of the other strings.
Step 6: In Between
With the end of your first color fold it into the open triangle area and pull.
Step 7: Continue
Repeat steps 4-6 gradually turning your bracelet for the effect of the twist. Do this until your first color is about an inch long.
Step 8: Second Color
When ready to switch colors, gather all the strings for your second color. Put your first color with your third color (away from your second color) start steps 5-6 as you did the first time.
Step 9: Wrapping Up
Continue this process until it is the size of the desired area
Step 10: Finishing Knot
When done, tie a knot multiple times to stop from falling out.
