The starburst bracelet is probably the first complicated looking bracelet that most people try when learning to use a Rainbow Loom so I decided to give it a go and make Charlie a couple of them. He’s only five years old, so anything more complicated than a triple single is usually up to me.
I used the following video to learn to make my bracelets and would add the following tips:
- When adding the bands for the starburst patterns, push the way down on the pegs as you go
- Keep them in order. It will make hooking the bands so much easier.
- Use a contrasting colour for the capping bands on the starbursts at least the first time you make the pattern. It will help you keep track of where the capping band lies as you work.
Despite it’s complicated look, I found this design is very easy to work and memorise and it’s already become a favourite of Charlie’s and mine.
