Chevron Rubber Band Bracelet

This is by far my new favorite design! I have worked at it to make it easy for beginners and yet, advanced bracelet makers will love it for its versatility when it comes to design! 

You will need:

14 Blue Bands
Black Bands
White Bands


Making sure the loom's arrow is facing away from you, place one blue band on peg 1 to peg 2 and then down the rest of the row.

Begin back at the beginning again by placing three black bands on peg 1 and stretching it to peg 3.

Place three white bands on peg two and stretching it to peg 4.

Continue doing the above steps stretching the bands skipping a peg every time, while alternating colors.

When you get to the last peg, make a figure eight with a black band and place the band on the end as a "cap".

Turn the loom around and begin looping the blue bands over the others like you would a regular bracelet.

Helpful tips: 

There will be a lot of bands on your loom. Make sure the bands are all pushed down as you go so they do not pop off.

As you get ready to hook the blue bands over, bring the blue band up a bit with your nail, so it is easy for the hook to get it.

Before removing your bracelet from the loom, gather one end of bands and place them on a jump ring (this will keep it more secure than a C or S hook).

Extend your bracelet to fit by using a hook and black bands to fit your wrist. You can watch the video below to see how:

You can alter the bands to create unique bracelets like this Camo Bracelet by using our NEW Camo Loom Bandz!
