Yarn Weaving

Shissler Rec Center took a break from athletics and tried their hand at weaving. A few older students created weavings before, so they were great helpers to those who were new to the skill. Each student got a loom and some yarn. They learned the over under over under pattern and wove their yarn through the warp. The “weft” is the yarn being woven through. As they finished one chunk of yarn, they chose another and we helped tie it to their previous strand. The pattern continued until the filled up their loom. We discussed how things like rugs and sweaters are woven with this same, traditional technique.
