Second Grade Weaving
We learned how to warp a cardboard loom.
Then we cut 8 weft threads each measuring at least 8 inches long.
We began to use a one under one over weave called Tabby weaving.
We alternated two colors to create a Tabby Stripe pattern.
Once that was mastered we learned how to create a Tabby Checker pattern for the center of our symmetrical weaving.
We use a master pattern but can choose our own colors.
It is very exciting to reach the line of symmetry!
Then we are halfway finished.
We carefully use the same colors to complete the weaving symmetrically.
Cutting and tying off the warp threads is the last step.
Now we are master weavers!
