@zbracelets pair up the strings make sure the colors match the way they are lined up in the beginning of the pattern. With each pair complete the knot that the pattern lists...(backward, forward, backward-forward, etc.) if you follow the pattern going pair by pair you will see a wave after you complete 12 rows. To make another wave start again at row 1. *pull knots tightly* if you don’t know how to read these patterns there are YouTube tutorials on how to make they bracelet. Another helpful thing is watching a video on how to read patterns. I learned how to read them yesterday and this bracelet is my first attempt to follow one! Hope this was helpful!!
