Intro: Single Crossover Bracelet
this is a very simple but a neat bracelet. I hope you enjoy your bracelet when your done.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
the materials you will need are:
The loom ( knockoffs work too)
The loom hook
Bands (two colors) :
13 of one color
14 of another color.
Step 2: Lets Get Set Up
Lay out bands long-ways down one side of your loom with the front of one band over the end of the last band. Push down the bands lightly.
Lay another set (of the other color) on top of the first color in the same way. Push the bands down lightly.
Step 3: Looming the Bands
Turn the loom where the arrow is facing away from you. If you are using the loom I am using look at the last picture please.
Skip one band but only this once . Take the band under the first and bring it forward to the next peg.
Take the band under the top band (s) and bring it forward to the next peg. Continue this pattern until you reach the end of the loom.
Step 4: Time to Tie Things Up
Take one band and slip it through the group of bands you just finished.
Slip one end of the band you just entered through the other end and pull the end of the band you just used.
Step 5: Time to Remove the Bands From the Loom.
Please take your time on this step.
Pull from the part that you just finished using and slowly start pulling the bands off the loom.
I am not going to tell you exactly how to do this because that is something I cannot explain. Plus you may have a better way to do this step than I do.
P.S. if the bands completely come off during this step and the bracelet doesn't stay together whatsoever... don't worry just redo all of the steps you just did ( I had to redo it about 2-3 time just while doing this step.) it is something that will happen and you don't need to worry a lot about.
Step 6: Extending
with your fingers extend off the closing tie you just made.
All you do is make a single bracelet until the bracelet you are working on will fit your wrist.
Step 7: Closing Up
Take the clasp and connect one side of it to the short single bracelet chain you just made.
Now take the other band(s) from the other side of the bracelet and connect it (them) to the other end of the clasp.
Step 8: Tada
Your new single crossover is complete.
