This is basically the leaves friendship bracelet except instead of the chevron, it's going to be using the braid pattern.
You will need 12 strings 4 strands for each color. Set up your strings like you would for a normal braid bracelet (1,2,1,2,1,2,1,2,3,3,3,3) shown in the picture below.
Ignore the third color strings for now and do forward knots with all the string pairs 1 and 2.
Pull up the first and last string out of the first row of the forward knots you have done (2,1). Then do another row of forward knots with the next set of string pairs (1,2). Then pull the first and last string UP again. There should only be 4 strings left (1,2,1,2).
Do forward knots again with those pairs and pull the strings up.
Do the last knot with the last pair of strings. After that, do backward knots with the closest string 3 across all of the string 1s.
Do the same thing with the rest of the string 3s starting with the innermost strings.
Do forward knots with the string 2s on to the string 3s starting with the innermost strings.
Do step 5 starting from; After that, through step 7 until your bracelet can fit you (or anybody else).
If you want to make a bracelet with this pattern
you should start with a string order like this 1,1,2,3,2,3,1,1,1,4,4,1 and then follow the steps above.
