Learn how to make a twisty wisty Rainbow Loom bracelet in this Howcast video featuring The Lanyard Ladies.


Hi, I'm Colleen from the Lanyard Ladies and today I'm going to show you how to make the Twisty, Wisty, Rainbow Loom bracelet. You will need your loom, your hook, I have three colors of bands, and a C-Clip. So before we get started you want to make sure that the arrow is pointing away from you on your rainbow loom. We're going to do the outside bands first of this bracelet, so we're going to start here and work our way up the left side.

When you get to the end you just want to put your band on the diagonal to the center pin. Now you're going to come back to the bottom and go up the right side the same way. Okay. The next step we want to do, is to do white down the center. Just going forward. 

Okay after we put that white band on you want to put a purple cap on that pin. So you take your band, cross it over to an eight position. And then push it together and stretch it out on top of the last pin. And there's your purple cap.

Our next step is to use the black bands, and we're going to go forward with the black bands. The first one goes on like a triangle. The next band we put on goes over the next four pins like a diamond. Now we're going to continue to the end with this diamond shaped black band. As you near the end the last band you put on as a triangle and not the diamond shape. 

So now we're ready to hook. Turn your loom around. The first step we're going to do is we're going to go into the center, grab the white band, and bring it forward. So you have to get behind the cap, get the white band, and bring it forward. Now we're going to go in the center and grab this left purple band, we're going to bring that up to the left, and go in the center and grab the right purple band and bring that up to the right. 

Now we're going to go in here into this purple we're going to grab that black band and bring this band to the center. And do the same on the right, go into the pin grab the black band and bring it into the center. Okay. Now we're going to go back into this pin here, get the purple and bring the purple pin up forward. And do the same on the right. 

Okay, so now we're going to go back into the center, grab the white band and we're going to bring that up forward. Now we're going into the left, grab the black and bring the black center. And you're going to do the same on the right, go into the purple get the black and bring that to the center. 

And now we bring up the side purples, forward, and this one goes forward. Now we go back into the center we get the white band and bring that up forward. We go into the left, we get our black band and bring that center. And on the right we do the same get your black band and bring that to the center. And now we go in and get your left side forward, and the right side forward, and continue this pattern all the way to the end of the loom.

So as you near the end you continue to do the same pattern, you got the white, you got the black, and you bring the black into the center. And then we bring our purple sides forward. That's one, that's two. Then we're going to bring the white forward. And then our black goes to the center pin, and this black goes to the center. And then we're going to bring the purple ones over to the center. Okay. 

And this is how your loom should look once you're finished placing the bands. Now you take your hook, put it in the center pin, attach a band to the hook, and you pull the rubber band through and put it on the hook. Now we're ready to pull the bracelet off the loom.

And there you have it. The Twisty Wisty.

But, first lets make an extension, you can use some white. Turn the loom back around, and get six bands. One, two, three, four, five, six. And we take our bracelet, we attach it to the last two pins, we turn this around and we start hooking the extension. We can put our S hook on the last band pull our bracelet off, we're going to attache the hook at the other end. And here you have your Twisty Wisty. It could also be reversed to this side too.
