Step 1: Getting Your Materials
You will need to get a color of your choice, and white. You will also need your loom, your hook, and a c-clip (or s-clip)
Step 2: Before We Start
First, make sure your red arrow is facing away from you. You should have a fat V shape with your pegs.
Step 3: Putting on the First Bands
You should see a diamond shape. So take your colored band (I'm using turquoise) and go from your center peg to the right peg. Then go from that white peg to the next one up. Then from that right peg to the center. Going back to the first peg you used, place a band from that center peg to the left. Then go from that peg to the one in front with another band. Finally, going from that peg, go to the center with yet another band. Next, we are going to use your white. Take a white band and make a figure 8. Place one end on the first left peg and the other on the first right peg.make sure you are pushing your bands down! Then make another white figure 8 and place one end on the second left peg and the other on the second right peg.
Step 4: Putting on the Next Bands
On the peg that you ended with, you are going to start with. It is the same pattern of bands. You take a band and place it from that center peg to the right peg. Then you take another and go one peg up. Then you end that side with a band going from that peg to the center. To do the other side, you go back to our first peg that we started with. (The 3rd center peg.) Take another band and go from that peg to the left. Then from that peg to the next. Finally, go from that peg to the center. Taking a white band make a figure 8 and put one end on the third left peg and the other on the third right peg.
Step 5: Keep Going!!
Keep doing this pattern until you reach the end of your loom! :)
Step 6: Finishing Off the Bands
Take a band and make a cap band. If you don't know how to make one, you make a figure 8 and wrap it around your fingers, then place it on the peg. Place your cap band on the final peg.
Step 7: Before You Loop
Flip your loom around so that the arrow is facing towards you.
Step 8: Looping
Reach under the cap band and grab the first band. Hook it to the peg on your right. Then reach under all the bands and grab the bottom one. Hook it to the peg in front of it. Then grab the bottom band by reaching in and hook it to the center. Then start back to the cap band peg. Reach past the cap band and grab he bottom band. Then hook it to the peg on your left. Reach under all the bands on that peg and grab the bottom band. Hook it to the one in front. Finally, reach and grab the bottom band to hook it to the center.
Step 9: Keep Going!!!
Continue step 8 until the end of the loom.
Step 10: Finishing
Take your hook and 1 single band. Stick your hook in the last peg, getting under all the bands. Then stick your hook out and put the one band on it. Pull your hook through the bands and tada! Your done!
Step 11: Your Done!!
You can take it off the loom. Now you can add your extinction. Also, you can put your c-clip on the cap band.
