Setting up your loom!

Set up your loom in the STAGGERED configuration. To get the white, red and black bands in place, wrap one around your hook four times, then catch a brown band on the end of your hook and slide the wrapped band off the hook onto the brown band. Bands 63-69 make up an arm. Place them twice to make two arms.
