Picture of hexafish rainbow loom bracelet

This is my favorite of all the Rainbow Loom bracelets - the hexafish! It's much chunkier and complex and looks more like a bangle. I made mine a bit larger than my wrist so I could wear it like a bangle, too.

And the best part? While it's a little time consuming, it's really not that complicated :D

This hexafish bracelet probably took me a couple hours over a few days, and the end result is perfect.

P.S. I really recommend making the original Rainbow Loom fishtail bracelet before tackling the hexafish. The hexafish bracelet is just like the fishtail bracelet times six.

Step 1: What you'll need:

Picture of What you'll need:

If you buy the rainbow loom kit above, you will get the hook shown, some c-clips and some bands - won't need to buy anything else! :D

Step 2: Starting the bracelet

Picture of Starting the bracelet

To start the bracelet, remove one of the pieces of the loom (so you've only got two rows of pegs) and make sure the pegs are squared up.

Now, take your first band and loop it like an eight from pegs 1-2. Then place a band from 2-3, 3-4, 4-5, 5-6, and 6-1 as shown in the photo.

These bands can be any color you want, as we'll be cutting them away at the end. I used black so I wouldn't waste any of the colors I use more often.

Step 3: Making the foundation

Stretch two bands all the way around the six pegs.

Use your hook and pull the figure eight bands over the top bands, going from the outside in. It should look like photo #4.

I like to go from left to right on each row of pegs, but it's not really important which order you do it in. :)

I made this but I didn't have enough time to finish it so I left the black part on and I tied the three loops at the top together with a slip knot and I made a little hat in the colours of my favourite football team, the Saints

I swear to God it's so easy to mess this one up. One wrong move then you have to do it all over again. Which takes so looooooooong.
