Hi, I'm Heidi from The Lanyard Ladies and today I'll be showing you how to make the Cobra Rainbow Loom Bracelet. You could do this either with two colors or three colors, but I'm going to use three today. You're going to need your Rainbow Loom, your hook, and a C-clip. 

We're going to make sure that our loom is facing with our arrows facing away from us. Then pick an outside color. I'm going to choose white. I'm going to start by going from our center peg to the left. And then we're going to make our rubber bands go all the way up, until we get to the end on the left side. This peg to this peg. This peg to this peg. This peg to this peg. This peg to this peg. When you get to the end, instead of going from this peg to the end, we're going to go from this peg to the center. 

We're going to come back down, we're going to do the same thing on the other side. We're going to go from the center to the right, and then all the way straight across. Keep following this until you get to the end of your loom. Now we're going to have our last rubber band. We're going to go from the right to the center. Now we're going to come back down the middle and we're going to put rubber bands all the way up the center of our loom. And keep going, pin to pin. And all the way until we get to the top. Now we're going to push all our rubber bands down, so we have more room. 

Now we're going to do a zig-zag pattern all the way across to the end. We're going to take the next color, which I'm going to use red. We're going to go from the center to the right. From this peg to the center. From the center to the left. From the left to the center. And we're going to do a zig-zag pattern all the way until we get to the top. Center to the left. Left to the center. Now we're getting to the end, we're going to go from the center to the left, and the left to the center. Now we're going to come right back down. 

We're going to take our third color and we're going to start from the center to the right this time. And we're going to go this way now. And from the right to the center. And the center to the right. And the right to the center. And just continue this pattern -- center to the right -- until we get to the end. Just like that. So now, we're going to go from our center peg to the right, and from the right to the center. Then we're going to take our rubber band and we're going to put a cap on there. Take your rubber band, make a figure-eight. Wrap it around and put your cap band on.

Now we're going to turn our loom around and we're going to start hooking. This is what it would look like when you're ready to hook. We're going to go into our center peg and we're going to reach down. We're going to get our bottom white and we're going to bring it over to the left. So we're going to go in there, dig down, find that band and bring it over to the left. And we're going to do the same thing with the white band here. Find your band all the way down there and bring it over to the right. Hook down and bring it to the right. Now we're going to take our middle peg and we're going to go straight up the middle. Go down, find that white and bring it forward. And you're going to continue this pattern. Go dig down into the middle and bring it forward. Dig all the way down to the bottom -- get that white from the bottom -- pull it forward. You're going to continue this all the way, until you get to the end. Make those teardrop shapes all the way until you get to the end. 

Now we're going to come all the way back down and let's start on our left side. You're going to dig all the way down -- in here -- your first peg. Get that white and go straight across. Dig down -- get that white rubber band -- and pull it up to the next peg. Dig down again -- get that white rubber band -- pull it to the next peg. You're going to keep following this all the way until you get to the top. Now when we get here, we're going to go from this peg to our center peg. Dig all the way down -- get that white band -- pull it to the center peg. Come back down here and we're going to do the same thing again.

Dig all the way down. Push all those rubber bands out of the way, get that bottom band and go forward. Pull these away, get that bottom band and go forward. Grab that and go forward. You're doing the whole border. Go all the way down, grab that bottom band and go forward. And keep going straight up until you get to the end. Now we're going to take our bottom white and go diagonally across.

This is what it's going to look like when you're finished hooking. Now we're going to get our C-clip ready and we are going to grab a rubber band. I'm going to dig down into that channel, put the rubber band on, pull our rubber band through, hook it on -- hold your breath and say please work -- and pull your rubber bands off. 

And with this bracelet, you're going to have to pull it apart a little bit. We're going to turn our loom around. Take the ends of this. We're going to extend our bracelet, so we're going to put four rubber bands onto your loom. We're going to take the end of our bracelet and hook it right onto those rubber bands that you just placed on your loom. Turn the loom around, dig down into the channel and hook forward to make your teardrop shape. And dig down, and hook forward. And dig down, and hook forward. And dig down, and hook forward. Stretch your rubber bands out to the side peg. Take your C-clip and we're going to hook it right onto your rubber bands and pull your bracelet off. Go to your hook and stretch this out. Take your C-clip and hook it on. And there you have, your Cobra Rainbow Loom Bracelet.
