Next, you will need to place 3x sticks and 3x strings into a 3x3 crafting grid in a specific manner. In the first row, you should place 1x stick in the second box and 1x string in the third box. In the second row, you should place 1x stick in the first box and 1x string in the third box. In the third row, you should place 1x stick in the second box and 1x string in the third box. 

Displacement of sticks and strings to another box or row won’t get you a bow. So, be careful while placing them.
