Here's how to make an easy loom bracelet for beginners. I bought a cheap kit with a loom and elastic bands, but the instructions were very hard to follow. I hope you find these clearer.

Keep going placing the loom bands in a zig zag shape up the loom. I stopped slightly short of the end.

At the end, turn the loom round 180 degrees so that the plastic pegs now make 'n' shapes in front of you.

It's now time to 'weave' the elastic together.

With the hook, pick up second elastic from the second peg and lift it out over the second peg, placing it forward onto the third peg.
