The MANGROVE Bracelet
Hello! Happy new year! I hope it was a blast! (not literally though, hehe)
Here is my new Mangrove Bracelet. New year, new hook only bracelet! Weee!
Rainbow Loom Bands I used for the picture above are from Assorted Pastel Pack (green and pink), and a non-RL brand silicone jelly white band.
Why I named it Mangrove? The connection with the bracelet is the way the bands are form like the mangrove roots.
So without further adieu, let’s get started with making this Mangrove bracelet!
For this tutorial, I will use Rainbow Loom Bands Opaque Dark Green and Ocean Blue, and also the non-RL silicone white jelly band from a local store. I used a metal hook from the Rainbow Loom 2.0 kit, which I find very good in making hook only design bracelet because the bands slides easily.
The usual start of a hook only bracelet is with a single chain. Make a chain until you reach the desired length of your wrist. Mine goes up to 20 max if I want is a little loose. Use a c-clip at the end of the chain so you don’t have to worry on bands falling off the chain.
Go to the first chain. Get your new band and follow a-d mini steps of Step 2 as shown in the figure.
a. Insert the new band on the first chain
b. Turn your hook, and hook in the other end of the new band.
c-d. Push the hook inside the chain.
Insert a new band all through all the bands in the hook.
Get a new band, It could be a 4th color band or the same as my sample, I used the same color as my first color band. Insert it on the band left on your hook. And then insert it to the next single chain.
Repeat step 2-4 as follows.
Do Step 5 and 6 until you reach the end of the chain. Go back to the first chain for the left side of the bracelet. Follow steps 1 to 6 but please be noted that to get the similar side you must work it backwards.
I hope the instructions are clear and understandable. Don’t forget to drop by anytime for a new bracelet post. I have a lot coming soon and hopefully uploaded this year. Thanks for your time reading!
