This pattern must be the easiest bracelet to start with. It is also great for left over bracelet string because the strings do not need to be very long.
Strings & setup
It doesn't matter how many strands you have but try to keep it between 3 and 6 so the bracelet doesn't get too thick. They should all be in the same length, at least 30 inches. They should all be in different colors.
Set your bracelet up normally, with the strings tied together with an overhand knot at the top.
Take one of the strings and make forward knots around ALL of the others at the same time. Make about 10 knots this way. You can change this number of knots as you wish.
Now put the string you have used among the others, pick another string in another color and do the same thing.
