Project Instructions

step 1
Note: Knowledge of the basic Fishtail technique is needed for this project.

Download your Original Monster Tail™ grid Here.

Using the MonsterTail™ diagram as a guide, take two Red rubber bands, twist them into a figure 8 and stretch them across from peg B1 to peg B5.
step 2
Load rubber bands to the loom (without twisting) as directed below, using the MonsterTail™ diagram as a guide:

Add two Red rubber bands from peg A2 to peg C2
Add two Red rubber bands from peg A3 to peg C3
Add two Red rubber bands from peg A4 to peg C4
Add two White rubber bands from peg B1 to peg B5
Add two White rubber bands from peg A2 to peg C2
Add two White rubber bands from peg A3 to peg C3
Add two White rubber bands from peg A4 to peg C4
Add two Navy Blue rubber bands from peg B1 to peg B5
Add two Navy Blue rubber bands from peg A2 to peg C2
Add two Navy Blue rubber bands from peg A3 to peg C3
Add two Navy Blue rubber bands from peg A4 to peg C4.
step 3
Using the hook included in the kit, grab the bottom two rubber bands (Red) from the outside of the loom on peg B1, and pull them over all of the rubber bands and move towards the center. 
step 4
Repeat Step 3 for the bottom two rubber bands (Red) on peg B5. 
step 5
Grab the bottom two rubber bands (Red) from the outside of the loom on pegs A2, A3, A4, C2, C3 and C4, and pull each one over all of the rubber bands on the peg to the middle. 
step 6
Add two Red rubber bands from peg B1 to peg B5. 
step 7
Add two Red rubber bands from peg A2 to peg C2, from peg A3 to peg C3 and from peg A4 to peg C4. Push the rubber bands down on the pegs as you add the rubber bands. 
step 8
Repeat Steps 3-7, alternating colors for each row. Once desired length is reached, continue by repeating Steps 3-7 two more times. 
step 9
Looking inside the center of the loom, gather the top rubber bands, thread through the bottom loop of the plastic hook. Once the rubber bands are through the loop, stretch them carefully over the plastic hook. 
step 10
Gently remove from the loom and pull the loose rubber bands through and discard. 
step 11
Thread through an alpha bead on the center of a rubber band. Repeat for each letter of school mascot, school abbreviation, etc. 
step 12
Thread the hook through the top two Navy Blue rubber bands and pull a Navy Blue rubber band through. Attach each side of the new Navy rubber band onto the MonsterTail™ loom across pegs A3 to C3. 
step 13
Continue adding rubber bands for a basic Fishtail. Determine spacing of letters to fit across the top left corner of the zipper down to the bottom right. Add the rubber bands with beads just as if any another rubber band. 
step 14
Thread last rubber band through the bottom right corner and use a C-clip to attach in the back (or thread through, cut, tie a knot and tuck into zipper pull). 
step 15
Optional: Thread rubber bands through the bottom twist, cut and tie them in knots for a fringe look.
