Use the "Normal Pattern" generator for basic patterns and the "Alphabet Pattern" generator for alpha patterns.
HINT: On friendship-bracelets.net's pattern generator you need to make 'repeating' patterns if you want to save it to the site. This means it has to be a seamless/endless/repeating pattern.
Basically, you need the string colors at the very top to match the string colors at the very bottom.
Match as in, if you have it set up as blue/purple/green as the order at the start of the pattern it can't be purple/blue/green at the bottom. The placement of the colors NEED to match on the top and bottom of the pattern! It won't work save otherwise!
◘ PRO-TIP: If you like a pattern that you just made and it is not saving to the site because it isn't a repeating pattern then just hit "Print Screen" and open up windows paint or some other photo editing software- click "paste" in the picture editing program and you SHOULD have a screen shot of your entire computer screen. Now just crop the pattern only and hit save- now you'll have saved the pattern to your computer. I do this all the time when I don't want to submit my work but still save it- repeating pattern or not! _____________________________________________
