Rag-Rug friendship bracelet tutorial

The rag rug is an easy, quick bracelet to make and this bracelet introduces you to the patterns on

Six colors of embroidery floss, one string of each color. I will be using blue, red, white, orange, green, and pink for this tutorial.

Set up your strings like a candy stripe. My order will be red, blue, white, orange, green, and pink (r,b,w,o,g,p)

Step 1
Now this bracelet is a little different than the other bracelets I have put on here so far. Instead of taking just one string and making a certain number of knots, you will pair up the strings and then make the knot. So you will pair up the strings like so: red&blue; white & orange; green & pink.

 Now take the first group (red & blue) and make a backward knot with the blue. 

Continue making backwards knots with the other groups. So a backward knot with the orange onto white

and pink onto green.

 Your order should now be b,r,o,w,p,g

Step 2 
Now you have to take out the outermost right string (blue) and the outermost left string (green) and set them aside. Now regroup your strings and your setup should be red & orange; white & pink.

Take the first group (red & orange) and make a forward knot with the red string. 

Do the same thing with the other group. 

Put the blue and green strings back in.  Your order should be b,o,r,p,w,g

Step 3 
Continue steps 1 and 2 until your bracelet is the desired length. The colors will continue to change throughout the bracelet. Always take out the outermost left and right strings in step two!
