Step 4:

Place 2 rubber bands from the bottom middle peg to the right diagonally! Do the same to the left side! Then place 2 rubber bands from the bottom middle peg forward.

Step 5:

Then place 2 rubber bands from the middle forward. Do the same to the left and right. Repeat that ONCE! Now place 2 rubber bands from the left forward. Do the same to the right!

Step 6:

This is optional! Grab a SINGLE rubber band and place it on the second bottom peg on the left to the right. Then drag the middle of the eyes to the third peg in the middle row.

Step 11:

Now take 2 rubber bands and place them from the middle of the eyes to form a triangle(look at the pictures!) then take a single and and form a figure 8 by twisting it. Then place the 2 holes of the 8 together to form a doubled O! Then place it below the triangle you placed earlier. Make sure it is also a triangle!

Now flip the loom so that the arrow is now pointing at you.

Step 15:

Place your hook in the left cap band and grab the two rubber bands and loop it forward! Then loop the 2 rubber bands that are in/under the bands you just looped to the middle diagonally! Do the same to the right side!

Step 16:

Now loop the middle single band forward!

Step 17:

Reach under/in all of the looped bands and loop the top single band to the right diagonally! Now reach back in and pull another single band and loop it to the left diagonally! Loop the last single band forward!

Step 18:

Now loop the right rubber bands forward until you reach the top of the right row! Then loop the last rubber band to the middle diagonally! Do the same to the left side!

Step 19: Almost Done!!! ;)

Now loop the rest of the middle row until you reach the top! Then take a single rubber band and knot the top( if you don't know how, comment or look at my other instructables!) Then CAREFULLY take the charm off the loom! Now you're done!!! PLEASE FOLLOW AND LIKE!!!! Enjoy your charm! You might want to stretch and/or adjust your charm! <3

I love this! Tysm! :)
Thanx! @nyankitty13 :)
<p>Cute. This is a well thought out and planned instructable. Here's mine. </p>
What's ur question @peachgirl?
I have a question
Just make 3 loops around the bottom 2 pegs to make cap bands
<p>For some reason I don't get step 13?!</p>
<p>Thanks for the instructions but mine did not work - I clearly got mixed up somewhere! Next time you do a similar tutorial it would be easier if you used different coloured bands at each step, that way it would be much easier to follow the pictures. And if you could add how to finish it off rather than saying &quot;see my others&quot; it would be better. :)</p>
<p>yeah true </p>
yay!multi coloured fish!
<p>awesome! That is what mine sort of looks like! </p>
<p>sorry i got very muddled</p>
mine is different colors :)
Thanx @san1 for the suggestion I'll hopefully remember to do that next time
<p>how do you knot it at the end</p>
I dont understand step11 where u do the triangles?
<p>this is awesome!!!</p>
<p>I dont know how to do it!! &gt;(</p>
Yay!! Awesome
Hello 105415, you could try doubling the bands. You know like instead of putting a normal band on each on a capband. Good luck!!
I did it it is so cool!:)
