        Hey. Fiona is correct, loom can mean the board. As this website is called loom love a board is required! Plus I don’t this this kind of bracelet is do able by hand. It would be too difficult by hand if there was a way! Wouldn’t you agree?

    • Fiona says:

      Hi. It’s called ‘loom’ love. The loom is the board and that is where they do all their bracelets so really they shouldn’t have to show how to do it without a board.

    This video wasn’t as clear as the other ones you’ve made. You should make one that’s easier to see. I love your other videos.

      Hi Sammy,
      This wasn’t our video… but because of all the comments we just made our own video tutorial. The link now goes to our video.

      • Sophie5544 says:

        Hey, I love your video! I don’t know what people are moaning about! I could see it perfectly! Have you yourself done any videos on how to make loom bands?

        • Crazy Glossy Girl says:

          i totally agree with sophie5544!!! it was soooclear BTW what are your names and how old are you loom love gals!! and dont forget that i nominated you for als ice bucket challenge

  2. sadie says:

    awesome video but what where u doing at the end? I had to do that part on the board like u do on starburst bracelets.

  3. Emma says:

    Definitely not as easy as your other tutorials. Maybe you could make a video of your own for this one? Ours did NOT turn out like yours at all. πŸ™

    • kay says:

      I agree… not trying to be rude, as this video is clearly by a child but it’s fairly poorly done. your other videos are so great and easy to follow- perhaps this one could be re-done showing ALL the steps?

    • Faith says:

      Mines ended up getting off, I mean the black ones (the one that goes horizontally). And was I supposed to get the one that’s on the very bottom?

  4. elsa says:

    this is crap! I did mine n it turned out with rubber bands flying everywere! iv tried it 4 times already n the dam thing keeps happening over and over! either make better videos or ill get a specialist to teach me how to make one!!
    side note -horrible-

  5. Angelina says:

    This video doesn’t help. There is like a glare or something and I couldn’t see the board. Go slower when you show us what it should look like!!

  6. Tran says:

    it looks really………. easy! i didn’t watch the video but by looking at the bracelet i can already tell that i can make it without looking at the video! nice bracelet though! <3 Love It!!!

  7. Gadd37 says:

    Poorly done. Went to fast and instructions were not clear. To say “hook it on that one” is NOT helpful. Will look elsewhere for clearer and better instructions.
    Nice try, though…

  8. loomie loom says:

    my friend made this bracelet up first and this is true because I saw her make it she did not name it railroad she named it the Temple. so stop copying other people’s bracelets and calling it your own. BECAUSE I HATE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!so stop!!

  9. Chloe. says:

    Love the bracelet except for the fact i made it like 3 times and whenever we try to take it off the loom (after taking 10-20 mins. of my life) hoping to get it right….. It all just CABOOSH! All the bands fall off the loom….Loom Love, i LOVE your buisness but right now i REALLY need a reply back! Please this is my FAVORITE bracelet!BTW im a new Loomer and i just started like yesterday. I am totally addicted and i got my mom addicted to it too. Were really frustrated PLEASE help!Love, Chloe πŸ™‚ im also not trying to be mean im just frustrated…. Sorry ppl… πŸ™‚ . smiles all around!

  10. Melissa says:

    I tried this twice and I couldn’t get it! The ladder part/railroad portion fell right off when I unhooked it all. I’d love to know if I am doing that part right, it’s hard to tell and it would be helpful. I am looming/hooking it just like the basic. Should I be doing something with the horizontal part? How should it look on the loom Color A/Color B/Color A on the loom (with B being the horizontal part)? I wonder if others are having the same problem. We’ve figured out the Fishtail, standard and Super 8, but this is not working. Help! P/S Keep up the great work girls! Thanks!

    • Caity says:

      Hey, that does happen sometimes did you remember to put a capping band at the end of your loom bracelet to connect it to the c/s clip ?

  11. Little Miss Cello says:

    This tutorial was simple and easy to follow. Thanks Loom Love!
    Ever since I got my loom, I’ve found the tutorials on this website great!

    Thanks again!

  12. Tia South says:

    This is amazing it is so easy to follow the steps people who can’t do it just need to follow the steps CAREFULLY but thnx anyway for making me know how to make this beautiful bracelet

  13. Josie says:

    i did every step and mine turned out wrong at all came apart……..i love making bracelet but i just dont know what im doing wrong it lokks so easy but when i do the braclets dont turn out right……..):

  14. Erica says:

    Thank you for this tutorial. I just started looming and was able to make this awesome bracelet. Great job!

  15. Dori says:

    I can’t do it, I don’t have the (I have no idea what its called) thing you used. I only use 2 fingers or pencils when I make loom bracelets. πŸ™

    • Wolf says:

      So do I, how are we supposed to make these bracelets without a loom thing. It was hard enough for me to do the dragon scale one with pencils.

    • Chloe says:

      If you look on YouTube there is ways to make a ladder band like this on your fingers.
      Hope this has helped!

    • Chloe says:

      If you look on YouTube there are ways to make a ladder band like this on your fingers. There are also other designs to do on your fingers if u look it up.
      Hope this has helped!

  16. holly says:

    • nasrin says:

      hi am not one of the website people but I would like to tell u were u get them from if u have red dot or big w in new zeland u can get them from there I just like helping

  17. Amie says:

    It wasn’t hard to see jeez, I thunk some of you need glasses. It was a bit hard though. Managed to do it in the end.

  18. Samantha Sanchez says:

    I love my bracelet and I can even do it with my Crazy loom.I wish I can work there.

  20. Jasmyn says:

    I loved this bracelet. It was hard to make to me though. When I took it off the loom it fell apart. Maybe I did it wrong but I’m not sure.???? I will try it again later. Just to make sure. But thanks for posting this video! ???? Thanks!

  21. Squeee says:

    This is easy as a pie. Please teach me how to make more easy loom braclet videos. ???? And to the people who said bad words like elsa they did theyre best so dont judge them

  22. Charlotte And Rhian says:

    hi loomlove wen i took my bracelet off the loom it fell apart πŸ™ why?

  23. Esme says:

    can you do a video on how to make a railroad and a triple single without a loom. Maybe with a fork/fingers XD

  24. Ysobel says:

    Hello loom love! I twisted this one up a bit by adding a single chain in the middle and would like to know if you already have a turtorial in which that is done. Please reply. Thanks!

  25. mallissa says:

    ive tried about a million times and i just cant do it! the instructins arnt clear and your going too fast!

  26. Loom CRAZY says:

    The railroad looks so so so so cool. I watched the video but cant make it as my loom is to small.

  27. chloe curl says:

    I found an easier way to make it…… make a “tripledouble” without the middle peg…..

  28. StrawberryGiggles says:

    I can’t do the hooking bit! I’ve got as far as the second peg over (pull it from the first crossing band) , but when I pull that band forward it pings off.. Should there be two bands going around the loom and one crossing? The video is a bit unclear. Help a newbie out πŸ™

  29. Fayebay says:

    It’s too hard and when I do the part to twist the band and put another band on each loom it goes on two instead of one please help I really love this bracelet and I’ve mastered the double fishtail πŸ™

  30. indi says:

    it is really hard and with the capping band you twisted it or something it is really really hard and the video goes to fast it makes it really hard

  31. SaraH says:

    I didnt have much rubber bands left, so i was hoping i had enough to make this. when i clicked on it, you didnt say how much rubber bands you need. On the other tutorials you did, so i was really confused. If anyone knows how much you need, pls reply ASAP. If i had enough, i would only be able to this multi coloured or detach the other bracelets i made. I dont even have enough C CLIPS! What is WRONG with me???

  32. Caitlin says:

    I found this very hard as part way through her hand is in the way so you can’t see what she is doing and I tried it 4 times and I have done it but at one end it wasn’t joined onto rest of the braclet and it is all loose.sorry but no thank you for this video

  33. Lucy says:

    soooooooooooo easy practically the easiest thing ive done on the loom apart from single and fishtail which i can do on my fingers too πŸ™‚

    Thx xxxxxxxx

  34. beth says:

    also it took me 3 times of it braking before i got the actual thing off the loom without it falling apart at the beginning !!!

  35. Lucille says:

    I love this bracelet! It’s like a triple single, except it’s a bit different and not too much. I like seeing all of the bands I use.

  36. LuciaLucy says:

    I can never get past the figure of 8 cap. I did the figure of 8, but when I tried to pull one of the bands over that or something, I had no idea which one to take. ????

    • Annie Ranton says:

      Do u know how to tie a hair tie? If you do, that’s all u have to do for the cap. Hope I helped you.

  37. Ellie says:

    At the point where I had to take it off the Loom, mine snapped. It wasn’t the bands, they just disconnected. I had spent ages on this and was really disappointed. The bracelet looks really nice and I wish I could make one.

  38. carlo says:

    what a video thanks loom love this is know my first type that you use in the loom.

    (p’.s I do now how to make chains and fishtails)

  39. Jesse says:

    Wow! Thank you so much!! I could never make any more outgoing bracelets until I saw this video!! It actually worked!!! I didn’t mess it up! Some bits were not very clear but most of it I could understand clearly!!! Thank you again!!

  40. LoomLearner says:

    really confused, since I’m only a beginner on a loom it’s confusing. Sorry. I’m not saying your video is bad, I’m just super confused.

    • Spike Fishtail says:

      I’m a beginner too. I have a loom named ‘Colourful Patterns’ and it splits in two. Try making a ring if u have 1 like I have.

  41. Maddie says:

    I actually find this soooo hard! The bands that lead horizontily come out! Does anyone have any advice?

  42. Isabella Moxie says:

    Thanks but when you hook the band you cover it up so we cannot see. This is why, whenever I try your bands I fail. Plz sort this crisis out.

  43. Samantha says:

    Umm I was fine at first but then u started to go faster and I kept having to pause the video. Also it was very hard to see and I got lost at the part where you had to put a single rubber band at the thickest part of the hook. When I went to take it off it just fell apart! ????

  44. Shamita says:

    Hey, I really love this design it’s so cool! I guess this is kinda like the triple single. But to be honest I actually found this type really easy. Thumbs up !!!

  45. Ginny Weasley says:

    Some people are being quite mean so I’m going to say the nice things for them.
    Thank you loomlove, this was a really clear video. I don’t think some of you guys realise you much work running a website is, and I appreciate that.

    To loomie love: you friend probably did not create it, with, like, a million other lookers it’s hard to tell. For example, I thought I had created a new bracelet called the crazy zig zag, but realised it was already in use, called the straightaway.

    So, all in all, if you can’t think of anything nice don’t comment, OR go create your own website everybody loves yet some people cruticise

    • Annie Ranton says:

      You are so right. Although, you are meant to say if you can’t see or something but there was some really unnecessary stuff there.
      Thanks Ginny

  46. Zoe says:

    I attempted to do this bracelet 3 times and each time the middle bands going across from the left peg to the right peg fell off when I took the bracelet off the loom!! I did exactly what the video told me to do, pausing it several times, but the middle bands were not secure and I could see that they were not going to attach to the bracelet!!! I don’t know if you accidentally cut out a part of the video, but I positively can’t do this bracelet following your instuctions!!

  47. Zoe says:

    Sorry for my last comment!! I tried a different video and the middle bands didn’t attach either! I think it may be because I have a different loom or whether it is just me!!

  48. Crazy Glossy Girl says:

    hey!!! can i get free rubberbands here cuz i dont exactly know where to get them ,,, The mall where i usually go to doesnt have rubberbands can u give them to me?? my address will be shown if u reply back

    • Annie Ranton says:

      I think ur not doing the slip knotty thing at the end so of course it fall apart just watch it again

  49. Annie Ranton says:

    Hi Loomers,
    I like the bracelet it’s cute and super easy, I don’t find it hard, I enjoyed but it was very slow. I RACED ahead of the person the whole time.but otherwise THUMBS UP

  50. phoebe says:

    this is harder than it looks its hard to see and you are going WAY too fast! i am a critic and i give this a 2 star

  51. LOL says:

    noooo! i failed! arrrgghhh. i was so scared when i was taking the bands of the looms because it might snap. My bands are bad quality. πŸ™

  52. Audrey says:

    The first few times I made it I failed but one day I pulled it of my loom and it didn’t fall apart so try it a few times and you might pull it off your loom and it won’t fall apart πŸ™‚

    why is this happening to me… :'( wht shld i do???

  54. Jamie says:

    I tried to follow the instructions and kept pausing it so I could see how but when I took it off the loom all the bands that go across just came off

  55. HIMADRI says:

    hi that was awesome and clear too but 2 or 3 of my bands came apart when taking it out of the loom . but this rocks , ill need another attempt though.
