@lyla_52 I recommend following the tutorial, not the pattern. It is impossible to represent this bracelet completely accurate as a normal pattern. Just following the pattern won't give you the correct results.
@lyla_52 since this bracelet is shaped, that space with no knots is when you end that segment and start the new row(s) with knots. if you want a more detailed explanation/tutorial, i would recommend watching alex innovation's tutorial (which is linked above). I hope this helps! (:
