Introduction: Standard 6 Loop Set Up for Hook Only Rainbow Loom Bracelets

About: SAHM of 3 and a freelance graphic artist, an amigurumist (I make dolls with yarn)and a little bit of everything! I love handcrafts, making handmade and I love cooking too!

This is a tutorial for a standard6 loops set up for hook only rainbow loom bracelets. It is a regular set-up wherein you will have a 6 loops on the hook that you can use as base, so you can experiment and create your very own rainbow loom bracelets using just a hook! Some of my designs are based in this set-up which I could hopefully share all to you.

Step 1: Things You Needed:

1. Rainbow Loom Hook - you can also use a Crochet hook instead or any plastic hook.

2. Set of Bands - If you are for practice, you don't need any type of bands for this. It will only serve a base for your experiment in making a new design.

Step 2: Making the Capped Band.

Get a band and make an "8" figure on your hook. This is called a capped band. (2 loops on the hook).

Step 3: Insert a New Band.

Insert a new band through all the loops (2 loops) on the hook. Do not close it yet.

Step 4: Reclaim Half of the Capped Band.

Reclaim or hook back one side of the capped band back to the hook and then close the other end of the new inserted band.

Step 5: Insert a New Band Again.

In this step, you should have 3 loops on your hook. Insert a new band on the first 2 loops.

Step 6: Close With the Other End of the New Band.

Close the other end of the new band inserted. You should now have 4 loops on your hook.

Step 7: Flip the Bands.

Remove all the bands from your hook but be careful not to disarrange the loops in it. Hook them back to the opposite side and then repeat Steps. 2-4. (NOTE: Please follow steps no. on pictures)

Step 8: Continue With Steps 5 and 6

Do again Steps 6-7. (Again, please follow steps no. on pictures)

Step 9: Finished!

Your standard 6-loops set-up (base) is now finished! You can now start your preferred sequence for the rainbow loom bracelets you will be making using hook only!
