    Haha, I know how to make a starburst, a triple fish tail, the ladder, and so many other advanced bracelets, yet, I forgot how to make this! How sad….

    • Wildstyle says:

      Im quite jealous that you can make bracelets like that! im still struggling :/ i tried the ladder apart from the middle collapsed so it was just two single bracelets attached at the top

        Try it on your fingers or pencils! Scroll down and look for my earlier comment. I wrote how to do it!

    The way I did it was different. When you finished looping the bands you take the last rubber band you hooked and strech it out onto that middle peg. Than you put on the C-clip, and you just take that bracelet off and attach the C-clip onto the other end. I find it easier to do it like that.

    I only know how to make the singal, fish tail ,dubble fish tail, the worm, and that was it but then I tried that bracelet and too me it was HARDDDDD

    Loombands are awesome. The ones I can make are; the single loop, the fishtail, the double fishtail, a triple fishtail, the quadriple fishtail and the triple single loop band.

  8. Twister says:

    The first bracelet I learned was a fishtail because when I tried this, I couldn’t “get under the first band and get the bottom band, then loop it over the next peg”. I needed my mom to help.

  9. Sam (mom of a six year old that drove me made for loom bands) says:

    Opened box and fetched out instructions, then got on internet and found your tutorial, then threw instructions in bin!!!!!!!! Thankyou you saved me a lot of tantrums!!!!! clear and precise instructions keep on fishtailing!!!!!

  10. Saskia(who was an awful rainbow loomer until I saw the video) says:

    Wow, thank u so much, now my mum and I understand how to do it and I am making loads 4 all my friends!!

  11. Rachel(Who sucks at these) says:

    I did everything you said and they all just fell off into single hoops again. I’m confused.

    • Crazy mum says:

      You need to make sure you go under the other band so there is something for it to catch onto, I also had this problem. Keep going you will get there

    • Ellie says:

      Try it on your fingers. Put two on, pull the bottom over. Put another on, pull the bottom. Pull the bands down every now and then. Do another 9 bands or so and… Ta Da! You got that bracelet!

  12. LOLgirl says:

    Thankyou for this excellent tutorial.

    I was given a loom bands kit from my wife and originally had no idea. After some frustration with youtube videos I found loom love.

    I successfully just finished my first single band thanks to your video and she now wears it with pride.

    Thanks again.

    I have recently started making loom bands quite easy to make got thousands of loom bands to make which is such a quiet activity to do …. Next step will be making different loom band designs already mastered the fishtail 🙂

  20. Lily says:

    I’ve loved making all these loom bands, I just made the tangled garden and it looks amazing! I recommend it!:) the starburst is really easy also and it’s so exciting when you pull it of the loom! Thank you so much loom love! You have been a great help to me! Good luck to everyone making their bracelets!

    I love looms. This is probably the easiest one I’m on triple singles and double braids and monster tails

  22. KW says:

    I found it hard to make a fishtail on my fingers so I got a loom from ‘The Works’ then I looked at all the vids for other bands and saw you needed one that moved I got one from the town market for £3 it works well but has no arrow on it so I just look at the shape of the pin arrow up away from you the pins look like a u

  23. oluwanifemi says:

    This is still hard though, but I will like a good video on how to make the bracelet with our fingers

  24. Sullivan says:

    I think this is a very good beginner video. It shows you how the box will be packaged, and you’re very explanatory for first-time loomers. You’re better at making loom videos then I could ever be. Love your videos.

  25. Ragini Sen says:

    I wish I could film a tutorial on how to do the single on two pegs. I just feel like the world doesn’t know about it. It is like this :
    You cross the band just like the first band of the fishtail. You put a new band. You pull the bottom one up. You repeat those steps. There. So easy!

  26. Ragini Sen says:

    As LoomLove said this is starting point for most loomers, I’ll give you one tip which I apply for all the loom creations I make. Make sure your arrows are pointing towards you and put the bands from top to bottom. No need to turn your loom!
