How to set up a loom for easy projects

How to set up a loom Step 1
Step 1
Insert one end of the metal rod in one of the loom’s holes. Gently bend the loom and insert the other end of the rod in the remaining hole. Cut a 40-in. (1 m) piece of leather cord. On one end of the loom, placing the cord in the first groove, tie a knot around the end knob on the loom. Place the cord into the corresponding groove on the other end of the loom.
