Macrame Bracelets...KNOTS!

Directions:
Use the internet to find a pattern. 
I have pinned several to this board https://www.pinterest.com/nataladooda/friendship-bracelets/?eq=bracel&etslf=4206
Copy and paste image of pattern to Microsoft word and print out two copies...1 for Mrs. Hurd with your name on it, and one for yourself to look at while creating.
When finished you may have free-time on internet.

It must be somewhat difficult....NO BRAIDING.  It needs to be a knot pattern.  No side winders, or ladders
