Double Zig-Zag Friendship Bracelet Tutorial

You’ll need 2 different colors of thread 40″ each. For the purpose of this pattern, we’ll say four 40″ blue thread and six 40″ yellow threads.

Arrange threads in this manner: (The threads are parted in such a way to illustrate the 5 threads that will make the left and right zig-zags)

Legend: Y=Yellow B=Blue

  1. First, you’ll be working on the right zig-zag of the double zig-zag. Starting with the 5th string from right (Y), make four forward double knots.

  2. Do the same with the next four strings until you create a diagonal stripe with Y, B, Y, B, Y pattern.

  3. To create the zig-zag, create four backward knots using the rightmost string (Y).

  4. Do step 3 four more times with the succeeding strings to create the same Y, B, Y, B, Y pattern.

  5. Now, work on the left zig-zag. Take the 5th string from left and create four backward knots.

  6. Do step 5 four more times using the succeeding strings to create Y, B, Y, B, Y pattern.

  7. Create four forward knots with the leftmost string (Y).

  8. Repeat step 7 four more times.

  9. To join the left and right zig-zags, make a double knot using the two strings in the middle (5th and 6th strings).

  10. Repeat steps 1 through 9 until the desired length.

  11. Tie your bracelet and cut the remaining strings.
