To start with; you'll need about 18 strings. Considering the fact you will need to split them into 3 groups of 6, makes sure that for example the first group has five of the same color and one string different color, but make it different for each group. ( for example: first group; blue x1, green x5. Second group; purple x1, green x5. Third group; yellow x1, green x5)
place the first group of strings on the left and the second group of strings in the middle and the third group of strings on the right. Start with the first group: take the blue string and make an alpha pattern of your choice. ( but it cannot not be a pattern longer than five strings)
repeat step one with the second group, but with using the purple string.
repeat step 1 and 2 with the third group and with using the yellow string.
make each mini alpha pattern even with one another. Make each mini alpha pattern a little longer than the length you want your bracelet to be.
when you have finished step 4, braid the alpha patterns together until the length you want your bracelet to be.
NOTE: you can use as many strings as desired but make sure each group has the same amount of strings.
