Heidi: Hi, I’m Heidi from the Lanyard Ladies, and today I’m going to show you how to make an advance stitch called the zigzag. You’re going to need your rainbow loom, your hook, and three different color rubber bands, and your C Clip. You’re going to need to take your loom, and you’re going to need to take the back out and line up your loom, so that your bottom pins are all lined up. We’re going to be working on the left side of the loom and the right side of the loom, and alternating between colors. So we’re going to start with . . . I’m starting with my orange.

And you’re going to start with the center pin, and you’re going to go straight up. Then we’re going to take our next rubber band, we’re going to go on the center, to the left. Then, we’re going to go on the left, straight up, and then, from the left, back to the center. So we’re alternating patterns. We’re making squares here and a square here, and back and forth. Now we’re going to take our second color, and let us wrap from the center pin, and go straight up. Then we’re going to go from the center pin, to the right and from that pin up to the top, and from the right, back to the center. Then we’re going to take our third color, and we’re going to go from our center pin, straight up, center pin, to the left. This pin straight up, and your fourth pin is from the left, back to the center. And now we’re going to start with our color that we originally started with.

We’re going to go from our center pin, up, center pin, right. We’re going to have to push these down a little. Right pin to the top, and right back to the center. Continue this pattern until you get to the ends. When you reach the ends, we’re going to take our rubber bands, and we’re going to put it between our fingers.

Get a cap band on, twist it into a figure eight, and we’re going to put that cap band right on our last peg. And then, we’re going to flip our loom around, and now the arrow is facing towards us, and let’s get ready to hook. We’re going to start with the middle peg, and we’re going to go to the left. We’re going to go under your cap band. You’re going to get that rubber band. Careful not to remove your cap band, and you’re going to go to the left. Then we’re going to go straight. Go underneath, get that rubber band, and go straight across. And then, we’re going to go the left side and do the same thing. Pull those rubber bands back, and go straight. And then we’re going to go from the left, over to the right. Now, we’re going to this square. We’re going to go underneath, grab that band, and we’re going to go over to the right. Then we’re going to go from this peg, straight. Go forward. Then we’re going to go from this peg, straight up, and our fourth band from the right over to our middle. And I’ll show you that pattern one more time. We’re going to go in here. We’re going to go from our m middle peg, to the left side. Go underneath, find that band, and go to the left.

We’re going to go from the middle peg, straight up.

From the left peg, straight up. And from the left, back to the middle. And now we’re going to do this side. We’re going to go underneath, get this rubber band, and go to the right. We’re going to go back in there, and get that rubber band, and go to the top. Go underneath here, and go to the top. And then from our right, back to the middle. You’re going to follow this pattern all the way across til you get to the end. This is what it look like when you’re done. Now, we’re going to put our hook through, grab our rubber bands, and we’re going to pull it through. Hold your breath, and pull it off. Now, we’re going to take the end of our bracelet, take you C Clip, hook the end, and we’re going to make an extension. So you’re going to turn your loom around, and we’re going to put four rubber bands. Take the end of your bracelet, and on to your loom. Turn your loom around and just hook forward til you get to the end.

And now we’re going to stretch our rubber bands across. Get your C Clip, and clip it on. Pull your bracelet off. Stretch this out, so you can get your C Clip on. And, hook your C Clip on, and pull it off. And there you have your zig-zag rainbow loom bracelet.
