How to Make a Compact Triple Fishtail (on the Monster Tail!)

compact triple fishtail

We finally cracked open our brand new Monster Tail Rainbow Loom and did some experimenting. We came up with this super stunning Compact Triple Fishtail.

This bracelet is different from TutorialbyA’s Triple Fishtail. The bands fit together tighter, giving it a clean, compact finish. We love it!!!

    Hi LoomLove, I’m Skye.
    I was wondering if it is possible to do this on a Rainbow Loom, because I haven’t got a Monster Tail loom yet?
    Also, on the second paragraph, I think you meant ‘… different FROM’, not ‘… different THAT’! I’m sorry for pointing it out, because I know many of your fans will hate me for supposedly ‘cyber-bullying’ you, but it’s a real pet peeve of mine.
    By the way, your cat is so cute!

      Hi Skye (cool name!)… Thanks for the heads up on the grammar. Sometimes we rush through the posts and make mistakes.

      BTW, we will figure out a way to make it on the Rainbow Loom soon.

      Hi, I did this on my Rainbow Loom by taking out the middle row of pegs. Then I moved the small blue connectors to either side of the loom, the I moved the big connector so It touched one of the small ones. This left a 5 peg gap. I then placed the horizontal band from peg 1 of row 1 to peg 5 of row 2. This allowed 3 bars in between this horizontal band. I then placed the 3 vertical bands in between this horizontal band.

    • SophieClaireLuv says:

      To make it on a Rainbow Loom, just align the 2 outside peg rows, and take out the middle peg row, the take out the middle base. Hope I helped:)

    I was just wondering, what is that thing in the video that looks like an autograph on top of your box?

    • LoomLove says:

      Hi Bea.. It’s Choon Ng’s (the inventor of Rainbow Loom) autograph. We got to meet him in March.

    Hi! This is Pamela and I just wanted to point out that your page is awesome!!! I’ve learned many styles of bracelets and I plan to learn more. However, my mom says that she spent so much money on my Rainbow Loom that she refuses to buy me a Monster Tail loom. If there is any way you could make a tutorial for this bracelet on the Rainbow Loom please let me know at
    Thank You!

    Hi I love your designs. I would just like to ask if you could put a picture or you wearing the braclet/ring or next to your hand if it’s a charm just so we can see the size of them. I know you have done this on some.

  17. Rachel says:

    I made tutorials by A’s triple fishtail, and I found it quite difficult, this one was much easier.

    Hey guys, I just wanted to make a suggestion (don’t feel pressured to take it) but I was wondering if you could add a category to the “rainbow loom tutorials” thing at the top. It would be awesome if there was one for monster tail designs! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Susan says:

  21. The Next Step says:

    I do not have a favourite bracelet any more because this one is so cool! My other favourites are the Double Rotini, the Solstice and the rock candy bracelet and ring, but this is SO awesome! The Next Step ๐Ÿ™‚

    P.S: I do not have a monster tail so I borrowed my friend`s one to make this, but do you know how you could make it on a loom? (For you it would be a rainbow loom, but I have a Cra-Z-Loom which is almost the same.) Thanks!

  22. Live off of the loom says:

    This is a great bracelet! I used metallic blue and black and white tye die(: Phew this bracelet took a long time though but it was definitely worth it (:

  23. Kate says:

    I love this! Can you please PLEASE make more videos on Monster Tail bracelets? There are really no bracelets for the monster tail. Also, I love your nail polish!
