Put another band over on your fingers. Start with your hook pointing away from you. Take your hook out and you're done! Freedom, random, and unpredictable in an amusing way. Don't pull too hard or you risk snapping the rubber bands.
For example, if you have chosen to use red, blue, and green bands, assign a number to each color: If your design is more complex, it is even more important that you plan out the specific color order. Loop the first band between your middle and index fingers. Make a loop on each finger—the band should look like a figure-eight or an infinity sign. You can also use a metal fork. Instead of using two fingers, wrap the rubber bands around two tines of the fork.
Loop another band above the first band. Do not twist this band into a figure-eight. Instead, make a single loop over your middle and index fingers. Pull the right side of the band under the top one.
Do the same with the other side. Repeat these steps until you reach your desired length. You just need to loop a new band onto your index and middle finger—above the previous band—then pull the previous band over the new band, your index fingertip, and your middle fingertip. Be sure to refer to your color order so that you don't make any mistakes.
If you are making a bracelet for yourself, consider measuring your wrist—and then the bracelet—to make sure that your new accessory will fit. Hold a string tight around your wrist as tight as you want the bracelet to fit and then measure the length of the string. Your bracelet is done when it's as long as the string. If you are making a bracelet for someone else, think about how their wrist size compares to yours.
If they have bigger wrists, make the bracelet slightly longer than you would for yourself. If they have smaller wrists, make the bracelet slightly shorter. Make sure that there is a band still looped on your middle and index finger. Attach the C-clip or S-clip to the end to hold the band together. You can wear this bracelet, give it to a friend, or use it as a decoration. Try making a few bracelets that complement each other. As you gain experience, you can experiment with more advanced designs.
Loop your first color over the the top peg. The open, concave end of the curve should face toward you like a "frown. Then, hook the next color over the second peg to the one before until you have your desired length. It may take some trial and error before you get the length of your bracelet right. If your loom is not long enough for your preferred length, you can move down the loom in an S-pattern. Alternately, once you have loomed a section, you can join it to another chain.
Once you have the length you want, place another band over the last peg. You can also loop this band over the peg three times for a smaller hoop, to which you will later attach an S-clip or C-clip. Use your hooking device to unhook the last band—the lowest on the peg.
Slip the hook inside the "frown" through the loose or triple band. Hook that band, then bring it back up through the "frown" over the peg. Make sure this band is not caught on the peg, and is only still attached to the loose or triple band.
Hook the band to the peg above the peg from which you moved it. If you made your chain in the S-shape, simply follow the pegs back the way you came. Slip your hook through the "frown" of the peg to which you just hooked the last band. Hook the band at the bottom of the peg the one stretched over two pegs , and bring it up through that "frown" between the peg and the bands , thus unhooking it from its peg and re-hooking it to the peg above. Continue up the chain until you reach the first peg.
Slowly pull your bracelet from the loom. If your bracelet falls apart when you remove it, you did something wrong. If you've reached your desired length, attach your S-clip or C-clip to that last loop. Make sure to grab all the band on the top peg. Starting at the bottom of your chain, unhook the bands from the pegs going back up your chain until it is free from the loom.
To finish the bracelet, attach the S-clip or C-clip to the free end of the chain in the loop that is right at the bottom. I know how to make the string bracelets too. When i bought the rubber bands, they said they were scented and the only thing it smells like is fruit loops and rubber tires. Thanks for the get8 tips! I had to make a fishtail for someone and I was stuck. I had no loom and vaguely knew how to make it, which happened to be the wrong way.
I know how to make this, but could you make any others??????????????????? I thought it was cool, because my friend taught me. I need to buy a complete set. If you liked this, I would very much recommend investing in a Rainbow Loom.
It does seem expensive, but if you enjoyed this craft, getting a Rainbow Loom will open you to many other opportunities in the world of craft making. It is a bit of a fad, but teaches great skills to kids and teens alike and keeps screen-time to a low.
There are lots of patterns you can try, in various levels of skill depending on your level. Although a box to organize rubber bands is a good idea. The original is definitely what you want, not another cheaper imitation because it works the best.
I Already Knew How To make it i juust wanted to see if any website did it a different way than me but thanks anyways you uys are helpful!.
