I know that I can select an edge loop in edit mode by pressing Alt and clicking on an edge.

But if I try to select multiple edge loops by holding down shift while selecting a second one, it does not work.

Why and what is the proper way to select multiple edge loops?


After selecting the first edge loop with AltLMB, just go on with ShiftAltLMB.

From the manual:

Holding Alt while selecting an edge selects a loop of edges that are connected in a line end-to-end, passing through the edge under the mouse pointer. Holding Shift-Alt while clicking adds to the current selection.

In versions pre 2.8 use AltRMB to select an entire egde loop.
