13 advanced Rainbow Loom patterns for the truly obsessed: How to make them, and where to buy them.

how to make most awesome advanced rainbow loom patterns

I bought a Rainbow Loom kit for my daughter on a whim and never even thought about looking into advanced Rainbow Loom patterns that she might do. In fact, I figured she’d get bored with it after making a few basic single-chain bracelet patterns for herself and her friends, and of course, a few dozen of them for me. But she got hooked on our editor Liz’s collection of  awesome Rainbow Loom bracelet patterns, and she can’t put the thing down now.

(Which means we’re sometimes picking bands out of our dinners, but hey, she loves it.)

If you’re like us, and your kids (or maybe secretly you) are looking for some more advanced Rainbow Loom projects, we’ve got the best video tutorials to make the advanced patterns for bracelets and the now popular charms. Warning: Some of these patterns are not for the faint of heart or clumsy of finger. Some require two looms, and a few of the video tutorials are an hour or more.

So if you just can’t get your bracelets looking the way you want, no worries; we’ve included links to indie shops where you can buy these advanced pattern bracelets and loom charms too.
