GELATO WOVEN WALL HANGING
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- Arbee 20cm metal silver ring
- Moda Vera Gelato Yarn x 7 colours
- Birch plastic yarn needle
Choose a colour of yarn for the warp (this is the thread that gets strung over the ring and holds the tension while you
Take the thread around the edge of the ring, leaving a tail of about 5cm.
Pull the thread straight down over the bottom of the opposite edge of the ring, taking it over the edge and to the back.
Take the thread up and over the downward thread. Bring the thread over the front of the ring, moving it about 3cm from where you first started.
Continue taking the thread over the edge and over the other side, just like a figure of 8. Ensure to keep the threads in the centre crossing over, until you get to the other side of the ring.
Once you reach the last strand, take it around the centre a few times to secure the warp. Take the last strand up to meet with the first thread and tie it to the tail you had made at thebeginning.
Using a length of yarn onto your needle, begin threading over and under the warp strands. Continue weaving over and under.
Once you are finished with a colour, thread the yarn back down through the previous layers and cut the excess thread off.
To add some texture, you can double up on yarn. To create some tassels at the bottom, cut around a dozen equal pieces of yarn and create a larks head knot.
