Speckled Rhombus Bracelet Instructions
How to Make a Rainbow Loom Speckled Rhombus Bracelet Pattern
In this video you will learn how to make the a Speckled Rhombus Bracelet (a Beginner level design). To make this bracelet you will need:
18 “A” Red bands.
16 “B” Orange bands.
8 “C” Blue bands.
A “C” clip.
It’s a good idea to have the supplies ready before you begin and get ready to continue with this guide.
Step 1: Placing the bands.
To begin with, place your loom so that the red arrow is pointing away from you. Check the diagram below to understand how to place the first 10 bands:
Start from the center pin and place the first “A” band to the left. Back from the center pin, place another “A” band forward to the next center pin. Place a “C” band from the pin on the left towards the pin on the center; from that same left pin, place a “B” band forward up to the next left pin. Now, from the center pin place a “B” band to the following left pin, remember to check the diagram to understand the triangle structure we are aiming for. From the second left pin, you will place two “A” bands, one towards the center and the other one towards the the next left pin. Finally place two “B” bands from the third center pin and third left pin to the last (fourth) center pin. Now repeat this pattern until the end of the Loom. Place a twisted band on the last pin.
Step 2: Looping the bands.
Now we are ready to start looping the bands, turn the Loom so that the red arrow is pointing towards you. Refer to the diagram below to loop the bands.
Start from the center pin and grab the top “B” band in order to loop it to the next center pin, do the same for the pin on the right. Go to the right pin and loop the “C” band to the center. From the center pin, loop an “A” band to the side. Don’t forget to loop the “A” band on the first right pin forward as well. From the second right pin, loop two “B” bands, one to the center pin and one up to the next right pin. Loop the “C” band on the third center pin towards the right. Loop the “A” bands on the third center and right pins towards the last center pin. Now repeat for the rest of the Loom.
Step 3: Finishing the bracelet.
Now it’s time to finish the bracelet: position the hook on the last pin. Pull up all the bands on that pin and slide the hook through the channel you just formed. Rotate the hook slightly to the left and place a “A” color band on the end of it. Pull back the hook and push it up as you place both ends of the bands on the hook in order to secure them: slide them to the thickest part of it. Use your hands and the hook to remove the bands from the Loom.
If you wish to fit this bracelet comfortably on your wrist, place five or six bands on the Loom and place your cap band on the last one. Extend the first band to the side and create an area to place your “C” clip. You can now finish your bracelet by connecting the area created with the band on your hook using the clip.
