Hi, I'm Heidi from the Lanyard Ladies and today I'll be showing you how to make the caterpillar rainbow loop bracelet. You will need your loom, your hook, a C-clip and we will be using three colors. So let's get started. We're going to start with our first color. I'm doing a red, white and blue bracelet. So you're going to go from your center peg to your right. Take your next color, we're going to go from the center, up to the center, then we're going to do the same thing on the right side with the right peg, straight up with the next color. And then we're going to take our red, and go across. Only working with this side of the loom. Then we're going to go straight up again, with our next color, in the center, to the center. Our blue, right side up. The red, from the middle to the right. I'll show you two more times and then you can finish this all the way to the top. White to the white. Blue to the blue on the right. And your red is going to go diagonally across. And we're doing to keep doing the same pattern until we get to the end. This is what your loom should look like when you're done. Make sure when you are putting your rubber bands on that your arrow is always facing away from you.

So now let's turn our loom around and start hooking. We're going to start with our left side. We're going to put our left rubber band; we're going to dig down and get that blue and we're going to go straight up. So we go underneath, get that blue and go straight up. Right on top. We're going to go to the middle pin, go down, get that white and go straight up. Now we're going to dig for the red, we're going to go down and get our red rubber band and we're going to go across diagonally. Find that red rubber band and we're going to go across. And I'll show you again how we're going to do this. We're going to take our left, the blue one, and go straight up. Go down that channel, get the blue, straight up. Go down, find that white, and straight up. Then we're going to go diagonally from the left to the right, find the red and go diagonally across. Let me show you again. We're going to go down in here, we're going to go straight up. Find the middle pin, straight up. And then we're going to go take our red, and go diagonally across. We're going to finish this pattern until you get to the end. And this is what your loom will look like when you finish placing all your rubber bands.

So now, let's get ready to take our bracelet off. We're going to get our rubber bands, and we take our hook and going to go all the way down into the channel. And then we'll get our rubber bands and we're going to pull it through. Hook it back on. Hold it there. And now we're going to take our bracelet off. Check out our cool caterpillar. And that is what the caterpillar looks like. And now, of course, we need to add our extension. So we're going to turn our loom around with the arrows facing away from us and put four rubber bands on. We're going to take our bracelet and we're going to hook it right on to our loom and we're going to start hooking. We're going to dig down to there, and just go all the way across until we get to the end.

And now we're going to stretch this out to the next peg so we can get our C-clip ready to put on. Now we're going to grab our C-clip and we're going to hook it right on here and pull our bracelet off, from our hook. Going to make this nice and tight. Take your C-clip and hook it right on. And we're going to take it off of our hook and there you have your caterpillar rainbow loom bracelet.
