Learn step by step how to make loom bands star and stripes bracelets.
The Loom Bands Stars and Stripes bracelet is a great project to try over the weekend. It’s super-colourful, so will be good for impressing your friends.
For making loom bands star and stripes bracelets project you’ll need:
37 blue bands
20 pink bands
5 orange bands
4 yellow bands
Turn your loom so the arrow is facing towards you. With this design, you’re going to be looping the pink bands first, from inside the orange bands. So, putting the hook inside orange band 52, catch the top pink band and loop it diagonally to the upper left-hand peg.
Putting your hook back in through orange band 52, catch the next pink band from inside and loop it diagonally to the lower left-hand peg.
Continue looping the next tow pink bands from within orange band 52 to the outer pegs in an anticlockwise direction. When you’ve done this, the orange band should be evenly stretched around the central peg.
Repeat steps 1-3 with the remaining four pink ‘stars’, starting each within orange bands 47, 42, 37, and 32.
Now, go to blue band 27, push it back, catch the bottom blue band below it and loop it forward.
Next, put your hook in the peg you just ended on, reach down inside, catch the next blue band and loop it horizontally across to the left-hand side.
Now, reach down inside the peg you just looped to, catch the bottom blue band and loop it forward.
Continue hooking and looping the next nine blue bands in the chain forward, making sure each time that you go inside the top bands and only catch the bottom blue band in your hook.
Now, go inside the peg you just ended on, catch the bottom band and loop it horizontally to the central peg.
Go back to the second peg up in the central row, hook the bottom band from inside and loop it horizontally to the right-hand side.
Now, repeat steps 7-9 on the right-hand side.
Next, put your hook inside the peg you just looped to, catch the very bottom blue band and loop it forward.
Slide both ends of the last band off the last peg and onto your hook before pulling all your bands off the loom.
Now, extend your bracelet using the remaining blue bands.
