Guess what I have been doing these past weeks...
I have been playing with my new toy! This Rainbow Loom trend is really making me crazy. I even bought a plastic divider to organize my rubber bands by color.
There are a lot of patterns and combinations that you can follow online but this one is easy. I saw this pattern on YouTube and they call it the "Frilly Braid". Before you make this, you should know how to do the fishtail braid and the inverted fishtail braid.
You will need:
25 pieces of blue bands
25 pieces of orange bands

Start with the first blue rubber band. Twist it in the middle to form an "infinity"or 8 and place it on two pins.
Then get your second band (orange) and your third band (blue) on top of the infinity band. Just like how you'd start a regular fishtail braid.
Let's start with the pattern. If the rubber band is blue, then you should do the inverted fishtail on the left side and regular fishtail on the right side. To do the fishtail braid, just take the bottom band and pull it up to the top. For the inverted fishtail, insert your hook inside the middle band, then hook the bottom band up and over.
Now do the opposite. If the rubber band is orange, then you should do the regular fishtail on the left side and inverted fishtail on the right side.
It can be a little confusing at first so that's why I recommend using two colors for this bracelet so you know which side is the regular fishtail and which side is the inverted.
Just keep doing it until you see the pattern forming.
When your bracelet is long enough, just take your bottom band up and over until you are left with just one band.
Hook one side of the band to the other pin.
Take a C-clip and hook it on the the last band.
And we are done. Hooray!
