@hotxhands i actually do not suggest making this as your first pattern reading a pattern. It is a shaped bracelet, and it is quite difficult to keep the strings on the side straight and now crooked. Therefore, i suggest making a pattern that doesnt have any holes, and that is full. Like for example #52592 by @natbunny. There are tons of patterns that are "full", so if you want more you can go to the patterns section and put in the filters "normal". On the other hand, once you get used to making and reading patterns, this pattern is amazing and really fun to knot!
