YouTube is a life saver.

the most bare minimum, easiest pattern for a cuff is the ladder stitch, but i dont reccomend making them more than ~5 beads tall because they tend to get floppy and not look too good.. from experience

another easy stitch i like is the Peyote stitch. Basically a loongg panel you 'stitch' together at the end with your remaining string. I believe cyber.grl made a tut for this?

x-cuffs are also pretty easy. Very bead consuming though. they can be plain as a x-cuff or build ontop of it to make it 3d eyeroll

Youtube tutorials are very helpful, though it can take a few tries to find a tuber who matches your learning style.

Multi sketch cuffs are simple. They are just very tedious, also keep the number even if you’re doing a multi stitch cuff, because one time I did it with an odd number for the starting thing and it was also very wonky,

Just learn with basic stuff like stripes no confusing patterns. Learn X base there r lots of Yt tuts out there and other stuff 2 help. If you want to make the 'basic' ones more interesting you can add charms like stars or hearts (again Yt tuts). There's a simple section (4 patterns, on this site) but the stuff in there ain't allways simple. Try and find patterns that are mostly big chunks if that makes sense. Just keep referring to the pattern and everyone messes up like all the time so just try 2 fix Ur mistakes and keep going happy. Also keep counting like a lot stop U get Ur beads in the right spot. That was allover the place but hope it helped.
