@kraggle for all alpha patterns you have a set of base strings (in this pattern there are 7) and then with an additional string (either red, white, or blue) you alternate between making a row of forward knots (right arrow) or making a row of backward knots (left arrow)

@kraggle for non alpha patterns the zig zag mean one of each kind of knot. so like if its shaped down to the left and then down to the right you would do one forwards knot and then a backwards knot with the same strings.

@kraggle if it’s pointing right it’s a foreword knot, if it’s pointing left it’s a backwards knot. I you look up “how to follow friendship bracelet patterns” or “how to do the 4 knots of friendship bracelets”
