    really like the pattern but it is awfully hard to push down the bands would it work if I used the first and third row of the loom

      This might be in the challenging category because it’s not an actual bracelet and for someone just starting they probably couldn’t make it first try, they’re not going to tailor the website to you, OK? :3

    This was very easy the lady explained good,but why is it labeled challengeing when it is so was so easy and I am a beginner

    I loved this video and the lady explained how to make the pencil grip very well! I love rainbow love and this was a little twist for me. My only concern is that the seem to always be putting ” challenging ” on every single bracelet. Begginers from rainbow loom see that and don’t think they can do it because it says challenging. I almost did not do this because it says challenging. I hope you find my comment helpful!

    I have a Cra-Z-Loom, so I can’t move the columns. I’m going to try it, but I don’t know if it’ll work…

    I am making one now and I have a little different loom that is possible to be changed and moved. I am making one as I make the pencil grip. I put the pencil in the hole when it gets pencil size and make it on the pencil.

    I wish I could move it from pencil to pencil. I think it would close up the space for the pencil to go in. And did you guys realize the design is similar to the Nautique?

    Tip take out a row and put Thelm farthest away from each other on the loom and put a pencil in the gripper before you are done so it will shape better

    This was surprisingly easy to make. The tutorial was good. I love my new pencil grip, but it makes no difference when I put it on my crotchet hook.

  12. Salina says:

    I did it until I ran out of one colour. It was a bit small, but It is OK. can I take it off the pencil to put it on another one?
    P.S. I don’t own a loom so I used pencils instead! Just as good. But there are some bracelets where you can’t use my pencil method. When I say pencils I mean by using the pencils as the band holder things.

      Lol I sell them too it gets me quite a bit of money! XD but only ppl from my school buys them 🙁

    I enjoyed making it though I made the grip using the pencil topper grip from a flappy bird design and also wouldn’t be easier to finish it off with a slip not so if u want or need to move it it won’t fall apart

    There are so many things to make!!!! I can’t make up my mind there is the pencil grip, the fish tail and much more. I just logged on this website and I am already loving it!! The pencil grip seams so complicated. I never knew that real people could do stuff like this. Love loom always makes me feel calm. I love this website!!????

  17. Sophieh says:

    My loom is the worst loom ever I can’t take things off cos everything is plastic so it kinda dosent work for me????????????

  18. Layla says:

    This was very hard i wish I could move it from penciL to pencil and it’s very hard to move it up and down the pencil

  19. Loom Lover says:

    this can also be done with the rainbow loom monster tail and is much easier if you do it as a single band quadfish

  21. Zara says:

    Hi, can you do it with the loom twister by hgl because I don’t know where to buy rainbow looms.

  22. Jemma says:

    You could probably use a hexafish, then with maybe a piece of string or something like that at the end so it doesn’t undo

      P.s love this website. I’m on it nearly every day trying to make a loom band to win a competition with a friend at school. Well done loomlove, keep it up

  23. Chloe L says:

    I really enjoyed making this. I found it very easy so I don’t know why people are complaining and saying it’s hard. I love this website this is the website I use all the time to make different types of bracelets. So whoever made this website is awesome.

  24. Looming Lucy says:

    There is a way easier version from Olivia’s looms and crafts i tried this one 2 hard but her one uses 4 pegs and is the most simple thing ever! : )

  25. Millie says:

    I found this pretty easy, and it looks really good! I used tie dye blue and purple, dark blue, and glitter blue. I put this on my hook, and it’s really comfortable when I’m hooking!! Thanks for posting the video Loom Love!

  26. Kitty says:

    I find that jelly bands make a more squidgy grip. If u find it difficult 2 to put it on the pencil, then u can put the pencil in the middle before u have even started and u can build it around the pencil.

    I have already done this. it is very easy. I am trying to find something else out. but this pencil grip is very very good
