Step 1:

Start by placing two white bands in a ‘v’ shape at the start of the loom.

Step 2:

The place a pink band between the first two bands in the middle of the loom.

Step 3:

Place two blue bands in an upsid down ‘v’ shape.

Step 4:

Place two white bands on the out side of the loom.

Step 5:

Then another pink band in the middle and two blues in the upside down ‘v and then the two white border bands.

Step 6:

Continue this pattern till the end of the loom.
At the end it should look like this.

Step 7:

Flip the loom around so that the end of the loom is closest to you and put a blue cap band on the end peg.

Step 8:

Take the top blue band from under the cap and loop it on to its starting peg, do the same to the other side.

Step 9:

Now do the same to the the other side and the middle peg with the pink band.

Step 10:

Loop the two white bands at the side as well.

Step 11:

Repeat the same process again.

Step 12:

Continue this all the way up the loom.

Step 13:

When you get to the top finish it like this.

Step 14:

Then gather all of the bands onto your hook and pull a white band through.

Why aren't you using an actual rainbow loom?

can u help me with an idea for rainbow loom that i have

I like it! But in step 5, when you say "then the white border", I placed the border last, and when I hooked, it wasn't right. So, I do believe that the border bands come before the upside down "v" shape. So that people in the future do not mess up, it would best for you to correct that. I don't mean to hurt feelings, I would just like to tell you that. Besides that, it is great!
