    Alpha patterns go forward and backward, shown by the black arrows as rows.

    The Royal Blue line is your background color. You will need a full skein of this color wrapped on a card.
  • 4
    The Bright Canary lines are strings 1-10.
  • 5
    Repeat Rows 1 - 4 for Rows 5 - 20. This will center the design on the bracelet.
  • 6
    When you reach a Bright Canary string, make a knot in the opposite direction from the knots in the Royal Blue string (row). The arrows in the knots on the diagram show which way to make the knot.

    For example: In Row 21, use the Royal Blue string to make two right hand double knots (forward) on Bright Canary strings #1 and #2. Use Bright Canary string #3 to make a left hand double knot (backward) on the Royal Blue string. Repeat this with the next two Bright Canary strings, #4 and #5. Then use the Royal Blue string make two right hand double knots (forward) on Bright Canary strings #6 and #7. Use Bright Canary string #8 to make a left hand knot (backward) on the Royal Blue string. Then use the Royal Blue string to make right hand knots on Bright Canary strings #9 and #10.
  • 8
    From here, start the process again, but start the row with Royal Blue left hand double knots (backward) and make Bright Canary right hand double knots (forward) for the design.
  • 9
    After you complete the last row of the design, make four rows of Royal Blue knots from Row 43 to row 46. Repeat this pattern for the next 20 rows, to finish the bracelet with the design in the center.
