(Sample was made with A, B and C)
Cut an 80 in. (203 cm) long strand of each of any 3 colors.
Following Diagram #1, fold strands in half and tie into an overhand knot at center, leaving a 1/2 in. (1.5 cm) long loop. With packing tape, secure knotted end of strands to a table or other flat surface.
Following Diagram #2, arrange the strands so that strands 1 and 2 are both the first color, strands 3 and 4 are both the second color, and strands 5 and 6 are both the third color.
The Diagonal Stripes Bracelet is made from left hand basic double knots. Refer to Diagrams #3 and #4 for how to make a left hand basic knot. Beginning on the left side with strand 1, and following Diagram #7, tie the first left hand double knot. Hold strand 2 tightly and knot strand 1 over and under strand 2. Pull strand 1 to the left to tighten. Repeat to make a double knot.

For second knot, follow Diagram #8. Hold strand 3 tightly and knot strand 1 over and under strand 3. Pull strand 1 to the left to tighten. Continue to tie double knots with strand 1 over strands 4, 5 and 6.

Following Diagram #2, arrange the strands so that strands 1 and 6 are both the first color, strands 2 and 5 are both the second color, and strands 3 and 4 are both the third color.
The Chevron Bracelet is made from both left and right hand basic double knots.
