First, take you base removal hook on the end of your hook and remove the bases. Place the middle row so that all of the rows are next to each other. Take your first band and place it going out from the red arrow sideways. Continue a straight row up the left side of the loom. Once you have finished, take one more rubber band and put it into the middle at the end. Repeat this on the right side so that when you are done, it makes a "frame" around the loom.

Step 3:

Now we will start with our next color. Take your second color and put it going forward at the beginning of the loom. Now take another color and place that diagonal from the bottom left peg to the end of the black band. Do this on the right side so that it makes an arrow shape. Take your black and make another forward above that arrow shape, and take a different color and make another arrow. Do this until the end of the loom.

Step 4:

It should look like this when you have finished.

Step 5:

Now we will place the "V " bands. This color will show up the least. To do this, go back to the beginning of the loom and place a band at the first peg in the middle going out and up diagonally as the picture shows. Do this on the other side to make a "V" shape. Continue this all the way up the loom.

Step 6:

Now we are done placing the bands. Turn the loom over so the arrow is facing you and place a cap band on the first middle peg.

Step 7: Loopin' Time

Loopin' Time

To start looping, go under all of the bands and take the top yellow band and place it to the left. Do the same with the right band.

Step 8:

For this part, you will not get tear drop shapes for most of the bands for this row. Go under the cap band and take the top red. Place the band onto the left peg it came from and do the same on the right. Then take the last band from underneath the cap band (mine is black) and place that forward.

Step 9:

Now you will take the bands on the bottom sides, mine are green, and loop them onto the middle peg.

Step 10:

Lastly, take the two side bands and bring the forward

Step 11:

Now we will start the actual bracelet. Take the two purple bands on each side and bring them to where the started. Take the black in the middle and bring that up to the middle. Then take the two green bands from the sides and bring them to the middle, and take the yellows on the side and bring then forward. Continue this all the way up the loom

Step 12:

Once you have reached the end, you will see there are two yellow bands going inward. Simply take those and bring them towards the middle.

Step 13:

Time to finish! Take your hook and stick it through the last pin with all of the rubber bands on it. Take a yellow rubber band and feed that through to make a loop. Now make an extension doing a single chain. Add a clip and pull your bracelet off the loom

Step 14:

13, 1:50 PM.jpg
Almost done! Take your clip and fine the cap band in the other side and attach them.
