Step 3.

Cut (2) colors of friendship thread to a desired length. Our example uses (4) 60 inch pieces of red thread and (1) 84 inch piece of pink thread. The longer thread will be used to create the X and O shapes. Fold the threads in half, tie a knot.

Step 8.

Repeat Steps 15-18 of the Diamond pattern to fill in the diamond shape with the red strands. Tip: Make sure you do NOT include the pink strand in these steps. They should remain on the outside of the knotting.

As the pink strands are now on the outside, use them to create a regular chevron shape to close the “O” shape.
