For this step, you can either use loom bands or beads. To make a loom bead, wrap a single band around your hook four to five (4-5) times. Then slide that band onto a single band. Place on your loom as shown. If you would like to use beads, slide a single band through your bead and place as shown.

Step 7: Keep Making Beads

Step 9: Begin Looming

To begin looming, go inside of your cap band and grab the top band, which will go forward. Then go inside again, grabbing the next band, which will go to your right. Go inside one last time, grabbing the last band that will go to your left.

Step 10: Down the Center

Step 13: Closing It Off

Loom the top as shown.

Step 14: Adding an Extension

Leaving your bracelet the way as it is would be bad because it would cut off the blood circulation to your hand when worn, so you have to make an extension. To do this, go inside all of the bands shown, pulling a single band through them. Then pull a single band through that band as shown. Repeat this step until your bracelet can fit your wrist.

Step 15: S-Clip or C-Clip

Step 16: Fixing It Up
