You need to put it on the left hand side just like this. Make sure the arrows are pointing up still. The arrow will stay pointing up until I say other wise.

Step 5: Now Place The Next Rubber Band Like So. It Doesn't Have To Be The Same Color. Remember, You Can Use As Many As You Like.

This is how it should look up close and farther away with the arrow pointing down.

Step 9: Now You Just Take The Crochet Hook And Return The Colors Back Where They Came From.

Be careful when you do this. You only should grab the color that it is coming from. Keep doing this all the way to the end.

Step 10: Keep Doing This Until You Reach The End.

Dear braceletmkr5,
Your instructions were right on the mark. Ours did not include turning the loom after loading with bands. My granddaughters and I thank you very much.
