So Here's the Original Prototype Made By Kamyk (The one at the extreme bottom) :http://friendship-bracelets.net/gallery.php?id=49128

After Experimenting Twice, I finally got it right ;) Halleellujjah ! :P
So Here's the Bracelet We're Doing Today :D



-Colours:3 different colors according to your preference.
-Strings:12 working strings, i.e. 4 strings per colour
-Length:Cut approximately 60 to 65 inches or longer depending on your wrist size. To be on the safer side, stick to longer strings because they're much easier to work with. But don't cut them too long, that'd just be a waste of string.


For this bracelet I will be using the colours blue, teal, and cream.

You can start your bracelet however you want to. I started mine off with double braids as shown below ;)


Step by Step

Step 1

Set Your strings up like shown below into 3 different groups

Step 2

Start off with your middle most colour which is cream for me. Take your right most string of the cream colour and make 4 forward knots onto the remaining strings going to the right.

Step 3

Pick up your next string in line which is the 2nd string of the cream colour and do the same as the previous step, making 5 forward knots this time.

Step 4

Keep doing this with other two strings as well until you run out of the cream string doing 6 FKS & 7FKS Respectively

After you've used up all your cream strings you will have something that looks like this.

Step 5

Now take your next string in line, ie the right most string of the colour blue (for me), and make forward knots on all the remaining strings.

Step 6

Do the same with the other 3 blue strings till you run out of blue and you will have something like this

Now set your strings straight again and divide into three colored groups again

Step 7 (Bars)

Now were going to work on the Bars.
Were going to work with the teal first.

Take the right most string of teal colour and make 3 backward knots on the remaining strings.

Step 8

Repeat this step 3 more times with the same colour till you have something like this

Step 9

Time to work on the cream colour.
Make 4 rows of backward knots until you have something like this

Step 10

And finally time to work on the blue. Do 4 rows of backward knots and you will see while you're working with your blue you will have your first shaped zig which gives the zig zag shape to the bracelet.
You will have something that looks like this

Step 11

Time to work on the division. This is basically repeat step 1 instead were tying it on all strings consequently making 4 rows.
Take your far left string which is the teal for me and make forward knots on all the remaining strings.

This is how it looks when you link it with the other colour. You don't have to put much effort on it. They align themselves at their own pace.

Step 12

Do this step 3 more times till you have a complete 4 rows of it just like this

Step 13

Now after doing the division part, you're basically going to repeat step 7 again, by making the bars.

Keep repeating from step 7 Until you reach desired length.


Now when your satisfied with the length of your bracelet and want to finally end your bracelet do your last 4 rows of forward knots

Next your going to take the far left string and make 7 forward knots to the right.

Keep doing this until you get down to 4 forward knots(Opposite of how we started our bracelet)




And that's all there is to the bracelet. I hope the tutorial was clear enough and that you enjoyed it too ;)
Cheers & Have a Great day!
