 How to make the Starburst bracelet.

When applying your starburst bands always start from the centre pin to the pin diagonally to its right, and then in a clockwise direction as show below:

Once you have applied all your bands you need to add a capping band on the centre of each starburst aswell as the last pin.

Now you can turn your loom around and start looming all your bands starting with your stars.
Always hook the first star band (the one in the centre row closest to you) off the outside pin and onto the centre pin, the rest of the bands you’ll loop off the centre pin to the outer pin in a anti-clockwise direction as shown below and to the right:

Once you have finished all your stars you can now loop your border.  Grab the top band and loop it onto the pin it comes from diagonally left, continue to the top and then repeat the process on the right.


You are now ready to pull your bracelet off the loom but before you do put your hook through all the bands at the end and grap a new band and pull it through, then hook the other side of the band over your hook as shown in the images below:

You’ll need to make an extension in order for the bracelet to fit.
