"Hi, I'm Colleen from the Leonard ladies and I am going to show you today how to make the tiger stripe rainbow loom bracelet. Our supplies will be your loom, your hook, and two colors of the bands. I like to use orange and black, because that's the colors of the tiger. So the first thing we need to do before we start the stitch is actually to square off the loom, so remove the center pins and move them up one notch, so that the bottoms are squared off. Okay, the first band you want to place is in this direction, now we take another orange band up forward, on those two pins and then the third band goes over to the right on these two pins. Now we take a black band and bring them across and another black band in the same, on the opposite side. Push these bands down as we go to make room. The next orange band can go up in this direction, then we place one forward in that direction. And then our last band, of orange for now, goes in this direction. Then we take a black band and we place one here on this pin, forward and the same thing on the opposite side, black goes up forward. Take another black band and we close off these oranges here like this.

Now I am going to pick up the orange and we repeat these original steps here - from here forward, so we're going to, place an orange in this direction, an orange up in this direction, and then another orange in this direction. Then I am going to grab a black and it goes up like this, and place another black band over here like that and there we go and close it off and make like that black square around the orange ones. Okay now you will continue with this pattern all the way to the end. When you get to the very end, you'll have three empty pins, you just need to do something a little different. You'll take one orange, up to the left, another orange forward, and another orange up to the right. Then you're going to cap these oranges with one black band all the way across, like so. And now we're ready to begin hooking.

So you want to turn the loom around and grab your hook. First step we are going to do is push the black out of your way and your going to take this orange and bring it to the center pin and push it down. Then you take the center orange - bring that forward, then push it down. Push those down, keep them on there. And then you grab the right orange, and bring it forward and push it down. The next thing we do is we go into the orange here and we are going to grab this black band on the left, which is the top band, hold the orange so it doesn't come off because it wants to, and bring the black over to the pin on the left side. Then you're going to do the same with this black on the right side. You go into the orange. You're going to grab that black band, hold this down and pull the band over to the right. Okay. The next thing we want to do is take your black bands forward on the side so we're going to dig in here, grab this one black band and bring it forward. And we do the same on the right side - dig in, grab the black band on the bottom, and bring it up forward. Now we're going to go into the center, we're going to grab this orange, the one on the left first. We're going to bring it up and connect it with the other orange on that side. We're going to do the same with the center orange, bring that forward. And then grab the last orange and bring that up to the right. Forward, let's push that down so they don't fall off. Okay, now what we do is we are going to take the side black ones, we are going to dig in here and grab this side black one and bring it to the center. We do the same on the right. Make sure you grab the right black one and bring it to the center.

Push it down, if you need to. Okay. So far that's what we should have. The next thing we want to do is we're going to go into the center here and we're going to grab this orange band on the left and we're going to bring it over to that side. Okay, there we go. So we bring the orange up to the left. We're going to go in and grab this orange band and bring it forward. And then we grab the last orange band and bring it up to the right. Okay now we take the black sides, then we bring them forward, so we're going to go in here and get this black side band and bring it forward. Then we go in this side and bring this black band forward. And then we're going to connect the black in here to the center and this black goes in here, we grab this one and we bring it forward to the center. Push it off with our finger if we need to. Okay, now we're going to continue with this pattern. We're going to go in and get the orange. Okay, so we're going to bring the orange one up to the left. We're going to go in and get the middle orange, bring it forward, and the one on the right, we go in and get that one. Then we bring that up to the right. Now we take the black sides, then we got to move these forward. One. Bring the other one up forward on the right side. That's two. And then we're going to go in here and we get the black ones - bring them to the center. Then you go in here, get this black one and bring that to the center. And you will repeat this pattern all the way to the end. So this is what it should look like when you get to the end. You want to go in though however to this last pin and bring this orange to the middle pin. Go in the center pin and grab that orange and you're going to bring that one forward. And then you're going to the right pin and you bring this orange one forward. So now we just need to take your hook, put it through the center pin, all the way through. Attach a band to the hook and pull it up through. Put the band on your hook and pull it all the way up to the thickest part of your hook. Now we're ready to pull the bands off of the loom. So you pull up and you...there we go. So here we have our tiger stripe, but it's not long enough to wear, so we need to make an extension. So I'm going to make my extension with some black bands, actually going to turn my loom around and I'm going to start just adding a few. I like to do six or eight, based on your wrist size. Okay and then I'm going to take this off of the loom. I'm going to stretch this out over the last two pins. I'm going to turn the loom around and I'm going to begin hooking again, just forward.

Then when I get to the end, I'm going to put a seat clip on it. We can pull it off and attach it to the band at the other end. And here you have your tiger stripe rainbow loom bracelet.
