Update 1: (Please read) This is NOT my design
Step 1: Gather Your Materials! :)
You Will Need...
A Loom (any)
Loom Bands (Black and White or Black and a colour of your choice)
Step 2: Placing the Bands
First, you need to turn your loom around and start from the top placing the bands, start by putting the white and then the black, by following the picture above.
Step 3: Adding the Holding Bands
so all you need to do is follow the picture again, but on the third holding band you need to make a cap band twisted once, and then you need to stretch it across to the other side. to make a double twisted triangle.
Step 4: Making and Hooking the Ears
To make the ears you need to get two black bands and and place it on the two sides at the very top and twist a single cap band three times around the top of your two black bands. To hook the ears you need to go inside the cap band, and grab the two bands at the bottom and lift it over to the top ( you might need to use your fingers ). and place it below (follow the picture above)
Step 5: Making and Hooking the Eyes
To add the eyes you get a single band and wrap it around three times to make a tight cap band and then lift the triange band above the eyes. After-that you lift up the cap band and place it on the triangle band, do the same for the other side!
Step 6: Cap Bands
twist the cap band around the end twice or three times ( make sure it doesn't get mixed up with the other bands )!
Step 7: How to Make the Arms
Now hook all the bands from the bottom and take them off, do the same with the other side( if your a bit unsure the picture will help). then grab the cap band and place it on the peg above, the same on the other side.
Step 8: Hooking the Rest of the Bands
So now you hook normally go inside both of the arms, grab the bands and place them both in the middle like the following pictures. then hook the rest like a triple single, but using double bands!
Step 9: Tieing a Slip Knot
To finish off, you have to tie a slip knot! First you grab the band below the last band you've hooked and lift it over to the top. Then pull it and make sure its tight but don't put too much pressure on it otherwise it might snap. Once youve finished check if any bands have been missed out before taking it off.
Step 10: Taking It Off
Slowly taking it off by using your hook or your fingers and pull it all off.
Step 11: The Finished Look
Once its finished you can pull it into the right shape and then put it onto your hook or pencil!
Step 12: Finished!
