I made this for my partner in the Catching Fire swap, she was a fan of Peeta and Katniss and I've been addicted to friendship bracelets so I thought I'd give it a try. I had never really made my own pattern before so after an hour or so of just designing the pattern I got to work. Over 1000 knots later it turned out ok Smiley

A picture of the complete front (sorry for the 'colouring' I posted it to instagram)


Now unfortunately, after using two full skeins of my navy blue colour I ran out of string so I couldn't finish the flames in all of their orange and red glory, but I think it still looks ok.

A close up on Peeta:

And last but not least, I thought it might be neat to show the back with all the colour changes happening:

This is very cool & I appreciate seeing the back, as it really shows how much work goes into it. Awesome work!

Oh man, your friendship bracelet skills are at like level 100!
Did you work across each row from left to right or was it a little more arbitrary?
