Once you have three bands on your fingers, take the bottom band, and move the side thats on the index finger to the middle. Then repeat with the other side. Keep adding and moving bands to the middle until you have used all your bands.

I think its much easier with the loom kit. 'Cause I have it and I tried to make the fishtail bracelet your way and it did not come out well. I looked more like a zipper pattern bracelet I make with liner.
