Project Instructions

Step 1:
Move the center peg column to be even with outer peg columns. The loom should now be a true rectangle.

Step 2:
Turn the loom to where the red arrow is pointing towards you (the loom is turned the opposite direction as the template).

Step 3:
Take the first Red rubber band and twist to a figure 8 and across pegs B13 to B12. Repeat, in order, from B12 to A12, A12 to A13 and A13 to B13. The rubber bands should have worked into a square. Push all rubber bands down. NOTE: The figure 8 is for this step only.

Step 4:
Load the next layer of four rubber bands straight across pegs in the pattern below:

  • Red rubber band from peg B13 to B12
  • Red rubber band from peg B12 to A12
  • Red rubber band from peg A12 to A13
  • Red rubber band from peg A13 to B13

Step 5:
Load the third layer of four rubber bands straight across pegs in the pattern below:

  • Red rubber band from peg B13 to B12
  • Red rubber band from peg B12 to A12
  • Red rubber band from peg A12 to A13
  • Red rubber band from peg A13 to B13

Step 6:
Take your hook included in the kit and grab the bottom rubber band on peg B13 from the outside and lift it over the peg. Set it just inside the square.

Step 7:
Grab the bottom rubber band on peg B12 from the outside and lift it over the peg. Set it just inside the square. Take the now bottom rubber band on peg B12 and set it just inside the square also.

Step 8:
Repeat Step 7 for pegs A12 and A13.

Step 9:
Grab the now bottom rubber band on peg B12 from the outside and lift it over the peg. Set it just inside the square.

Step 10:
Load another layer of four rubber bands straight across pegs in the pattern below:

  • Red rubber band from peg B13 to B12
  • Red rubber band from peg B12 to A12
  • Red rubber band from peg A12 to A13
  • Red rubber band from peg A13 to B13

Step 11:
Repeat Steps 6-10. In the image shown the color pattern is: six rows of red, one white, two pink, one white and six reds; however, change colors as desired.

Step 12:
To remove pencil favor from loom, finish all colors by working around the square by the same means for Steps 6-9, until the last two layers are remaining on the pegs.

Step 13:
Starting with peg A13, thread rubber bands onto hook. Work around until favor is removed from the loom and onto the hook. Leave it on the hook.

Step 14:
Take the pencil and slide it through, lead end first, favor. Pencil may have to be maneuvered into favor.

Step 15:
Once the pencil is through the other end (near the hook) roughly an inch, take the first two rubber bands closest to hook and remove it from the hook and loop over pencil. Repeat until all rubber bands are on the pencil.
