Start with your rainbow loom in the normal configuration. Start with the red arrow facing away from you and place the first band diagonally out to the left. Now go in a straight chain up until the second to last pin. To end this, take one more band and bring it into the middle. Do the same on the right.

Step 3:

The twists will go horizontally across the loom. To do this, take three different colors of bands and twist them together into an 8 shape. Place this across the loom on the pegs the picture shows. Continue this all the way up the loom.
