This is my first written tutorial, so bear with me. Please note I did not come up with this bracelet/pattern, I saw a photo and pattern on the internet, and wasn't able to find it again :(
For this bracelet you will first need to know how to make - a candy stripe with forward knots, a candy stripe with backward knots, normal chevrons, inverted chevrons

Supplies

- 3 colors of string; 6 strands of each color; (one color will be used more than the other two, so these strings will need to be longer)
- scissors
- clipboard

Set-up

I chose to start my bracelet with braids. I started first with a knot, until I got further along in the bracelet, then braided them later on. But you can start your bracelet any way you want to: buckle, shape-d V, etc.

You will need to set up the strings into sets of three.
CCCBBBAAA AAABBBCCC - (please note Strings A will be the longer strings and used more often)

For my bracelet - A : dark teal, B : white, C : light teal

Pattern/Directions

Step 1

You will be making an Inverted Chevron again.
Make a forward knot with the middle to String A's.
Working on the RIGHT side, using String A make forward knots across all of the strings to the right
Working on the LEFT side, using String A make backward knots across all strings to the left
Repeat this until you've got 3 rows of String A (See above photos 1a-1c)

Your strings should now be: AAACCCBBB BBBCCCAAA
Take each section of three strings, you will be making thin candy stripes.

Step 2

String B (White)
Working on the LEFT side of the chevron: Make 9 rows of backward knots to the left, (see photo 2a); Then with the first two strings make a backward knot. (see photo 2b)
Working on the RIGHT side of the chevron: Make 9 rows of forward knots to the right ; Then with the first two strings, make a forward knot

Step 3

String C (Light Teal)
Working on the LEFT side of the chevron: Make 7 rows of backward knots to the left, (see photo 3a); Then with the first two strings make a backward knot. (see photo 3b)
Working on the RIGHT side of the chevron: Make 7 rows of forward knots to the right ; Then with the first two strings, make a forward knot

Step 4

String A (Dark Teal)
Working on the LEFT side of the chevron: Make 5 rows of backward knots to the left, (see photo 4a); Then with the first two strings make a backward knot. (see photo 4b)
Working on the RIGHT side of the chevron: Make 5 rows of forward knots to the right ; Then with the first two strings, make a forward knot


Step 5

You will be making a normal chevron.
Working from the RIGHT side, make backward knots across all the strings on the right with the first String A (8 strings)
Working from the LEFT side, make forward knots knots across all the strings on the left with the first String A (8 strings)
Connect both String A's you just knotted with using a forward knot.
Repeat this step until you've got three rows of String A (See above photos 5a-5e)

Your strings should now be: CCCBBBAAA AAAABBBCCC
Take each section of three strings, you will be making thin candy stripes, again.

Step 6

String C (Light Teal)
Working on the LEFT side of the chevron: Make 9 rows of forward knots to the left, (see photo 6a); Then with the first two strings make a forward knot. (see photo 6b)
Working on the RIGHT side of the chevron: Make 9 rows of backward knots to the right ; Then with the first two strings, make a backward knot

Step 7

String B (White)
Working on the LEFT side of the chevron: Make 7 rows of forward knots to the left, (see photo 7a); Then with the first two strings make a forward knot. (see photo 7b)
Working on the RIGHT side of the chevron: Make 7 rows of backward knots to the right ; Then with the first two strings, make a backward knot

Step 8

String A (Dark Teal)
Working on the LEFT side of the chevron: Make 5 rows of forward knots to the left, (see photo 8a); Then with the first two strings make a forward knot. (see photo 8b)
Working on the RIGHT side of the chevron: Make 5 rows of backward knots to the right ; Then with the first two strings, make a backward knot

Step 9

You will be making an Inverted Chevron again.
Make a forward knot with the middle to String A's.
Working on the RIGHT side, using String A make forward knots across all of the strings to the right
Working on the LEFT side, using String A make backward knots across all strings to the left
Repeat this until you've got 3 rows of String A (See above photos 9a-9e)

Your strings should now be: AAACCCBBB BBBCCCAAA

--------------------------------------------------------


This is how your bracelet should look after doing steps 1-9.
You'll notice you're back to step 2 now.
Repeat steps 2-9 until you're bracelet is knotted to your desired length :)
