How to Make the Triple Fishtail

triple fishtailAs with most loomers, the Fishtail was one of the first bracelets we learned to make – and it still holds a special place in our hearts. It’s a simple, great looking design.

The Triple Fishtail, by TutorialsbyA, is quite a bit more complicated and time-consuming – but it is a beauty and definitely worth the effort!

    Hi Loom Love,
    Your tutorials are great! I can find every pattern in one place which makes everything a lot easier. Could you please show us how to make a giant strawberry charm? Thank you for this great website!

    You made it, thanks for doing it after I requested it! 😀 😀
    Unless you just found it randomly… but still, isn’t it so cool!?

    I know you might think this is crazy, but why don’t you make your own book full of any designs you want, that way we can read it and remember these designs if you take your website down, and you can have all your memories of this in one book. Amazing Right!!!!

      Yes that is quite a good idea, but what about new designs we would want them quickly and we would t be able to get a new pattern every day

    Wow this is amazing I am always
    Looking for new and easy ideas for
    My look bands but I can not

    Hey guys,
    I made this bracelet and made an all around triple single in this same method–just use two “horizontal” bands instead of three and I think use two “vertical” bands instead of three, so when you loop the bottom vertical band over, there is only one on and when you reload the vertical bands, there is two instead of three, like with a normal triple fishtail.

    When is there going to be another contest? I am practicing tons of Rainbow Loom things so I’m ready when the next one happens 🙂

    I FINALLY made this bracelet!! This is really cool! I tried making a DOUBLE fishtail, but the middle has all these cross bands sticking out. Can you guys try making a double fishtail and see how it turns out? Thanks 😉

    I just recently got into the whole rainbow loom bracelet thing and have been trying tons of patterns with lots of success. But I am curious, Is it possible for me to make this pattern using 4 colors and have them all show??

    Hi, I love your designs! My only problem is, I was in the middle of making this bracelet and realized that it won’t work with my loom. I was disappointed since i finally got the hang of it and had to pull it apart. Most designs need the rainbow loom with some people don’t own, I would love it if someone cause make these designs not on a rainbow loom.

    This is an awesome design, im making a loom bag, and am using the the triple fishtail design as the over shoulder strap.xx

    I found your tutorial yesterday. Our loom doesn’t have a gap in the bottom but as we have made fishtails on a fork before I had an idea … I got 2 picnic forks and taped them together with lego bricks between the handles to create a gap for the bracelet to feed through and it worked!
