How to Make a Double Cross Rainbow Loom Bracelet

double cross rainbow loom

We thought we invented this Rainbow Loom bracelet, but after a quick search on Youtube we found that it already existed as the Double Cross. That’s the thing with Rainbow Loom – with over one million looms out there, there’s a pretty good chance that no matter what you come up with, somebody has already done it.

The Double Cross bracelet is fairly straightforward – if you can do a Fishtail, you can probably create this bracelet without a problem. However, it is time-consuming. One bracelet can take up to half an hour to make. Given the result, we think it’s well worth the effort.


We love this bracelet so much, that we made our own How to Make a Double Cross Bracelet tutorial on Youtube. It is our first tutorial!

        I have a suggestion on a bracelet I think you haven’t done
        (I only know how to do it on my fingers though)
        You do the same as a normal fishtail and then inverted fishtail, fishtail, inverted fishtail, and continue till the end of the bracelet

          Hey i was wondering could you somehow give me instructions on how to do a fishtail with your fingers because i use to know and i cant remember how i did it the only way i can seem to do it now is the way where you just have like spaces between if that makes sense. Thanks!

        How do you do the same one but on your fingers because i dont have the loom.please reply soon and a video because this is to compete with my bff!

          I’m not sure if you can do on your fingers but you can easily make it on a fork. So don’t give up if u don’t have a loom! STEP 1: On the fork, take 1 band, put on second prong of fork, twist, put on forth. STEP 2: Take anothersingle, place on first fork prong, twist and put on third prong. STEP 3: Repeat both steps twice. STEP 4: take the four bottom bands and one by one loop over to the other side of fork. STEP 5: Take anothertwo, repeat step 1 and 2, then loop over. Keep doing that until long enough STEP 5: put ALL REMAINING bands into your hook. STEP 6: Pull 1 more band throughall them. Connect with clip and done.

          And that’s how to do on fork. I hope it helps, is hard when u don’t have picturesfor it.

  12. Olivia says:

  14. Chloe says:

    This helped me so much I’m halve way through making one already.???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  15. leah says:

    I have a suggestion.
    You start like an inverted fishtail but put three bands above the figure of eight and do the same as an inverted fishtail. Sound easy? It’s not! You can have more than four bands to start but four work best.

  16. Olivia says:

    This video is an amazing help and i think the rating should be easy since this is the first one i have actually completed on the loom

  17. Rebecca says:
