this is a level 3 on the 1-10 difficulty scale. you'll need different color bands of seven colors, 9 bands of each color and 3 black bands. a crochet hook or loom hook (I recommend the metal crochet hook because a plastic one may break in this project), and at least 7 s or c clips.
Step 1: Step one
take a single black band and twist it on your hook
Step 2: Step two
now take two of the same color and pull them through the black band. do this again three more times with that same color. put a clip through the end and remove your hook. yours should look like the last picture.
Step 3: Step three
now get another color, in my case I have purple, and do the same as I did with the green. put your hook through the black and pull two purple bands through.. then do this three more times and put a clip through the end and remove your hook. your project should now look like my last picture.
Step 4: Step four
do step three with all seven of your colors, going through and after four layers, put a clip on the end. your project should look like my last picture.
Step 5: Step five
now in this so you'll want to be careful taking the clips off because you can break your bands. try taking one band out of the clip at a time. put your hook through the end of one color like the picture shows then take the hook off. do the same for all the colors. they should all be hookless and on your hook like my last picture.
Step 6: Step six
now take two black bands and put a clip on them. this will keep the bands from going all the way through. pull the black bands through all seven colors then put your hook through the other end of the black bands. now you can take the clip off. your project should look just like my last picture.
Step 7: Final step
now pick two colors (2 bands)and pull them through the black bands and lock them in place.
