Friendship Keychains, Bookmarks & Bracelets - Working with multi-color patterns
In this class you will learn how to work with multi-color friendship bracelet patterns. You will receive the skills necessary to work with any pattern that involves forward and backward knots. You will learn how to be creative with the pattern, turning it into a keychain, bookmark, and/or bracelet. This class also encourages creativity and will present several different ways of doing things. To get the best experience, think of it more as a tutorial. After you watch "Finding a Pattern", find a pattern you want to work with and then decide if you want to make a bookmark, keychain, or bracelet with it. Then move on to "Understanding the Pattern".
Skills students will learn:
How to read and work with a pattern
How to use one pattern to create three different projects
How to precisely measure the length of sting required for each project
How to weave in new colors into a project
This class is for anyone wishing to learn how to work with these intricate patterns. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or someone who has friendship braceleted before and wishes to broaden their skills. If you have experience with friendship bracelets and macrame, feel free to skip around.

Then, follow my lessons carefully. Here are the patterns I worked with in the class:
