Arrow bracelet - #2 Friendship Bracelet Tutorial After you've done a few successful strip bracelets (pattern 1), you're ready to do the arrow one (chevron, #2). For this bracelet you need to know both forward and backward knots. When you're doing the arrow bracelet, you need two strings of each colour. That means that when you're doing a bracelet from eight strings, you need four colours.

The strings should be the same length as while doing the striped bracelet (1 metre).
