Connect Loomed Pieces Together

When creating woven designs, you may want to make something longer than the loom allows or longer than what you set out to create initially. It's easy to do by creating shorter pieces and stitching them together using the square stitch. Learn this technique to make wrap bracelets, head bands, hat bands, belts and more!
STEP ONESTEP TWOSTEP THREE
This is the first completed section of your design. Leave a thread end to connect the two pieces together. Tie off any excess thread ends that you won't be using.This is the end where we have left off.Make sure you start your next section of loomwork where the pattern leaves off in the first section.
STEP FOURSTEP FIVESTEP SIX
Once you have completed your second section, tie off the ends. Line up your two sections on the ends where the pattern matches up.With the thread on the right side of the first section, thread the needle through the first two beads on the right in the second section. Make sure you enter the beads from the right side.Then, bring the thread through the second bead from the right of the first section, making sure you enter from the left.
STEP SEVENSTEP EIGHTSTEP NINE
As you pull your thread taut, you can see a square form in the thread.Enter the second and third beads from the right in the row directly above the bead where your thread is exiting. Make sure you enter these beads from the right.Then, bring the thread through the third bead from the right on the lower row. Enter this bead from the left.
STEP TENSTEP ELEVENSTEP TWELVE
Continue stitching in this manner until you reach the other end of the piece.Close up the last beadsWeave and knot the thread into the body of the design and trim.
