1. Cut an even number of triangles/points around the edge of the paper plate - on reflection we decided we had too many as had cut quite small and most pupils had created between 30-40 points - we would suggest about 20-22 points (it depends on how many warp threads you want, or how fiddly you are prepared to get).
2. Wrap the wool twice around the most central part (ie halfway points) of the plate to make two warp threads and tie them at the back. You should then have an uneven number of cuts on one side eg 11 and an even number of cuts eg 10 on the other side. Make sure you have numbers that are consecutive eg 13-14 or 9-10 as this means your warp threads are in the middle.
|The threads here need to be moved over to have the right number of cuts on each side of them.|
4. Now tie a weft thread in the colour of your choice to the centre of the warp threads. Begin weaving over and under the warp threads - work near the outside edge of the plate so that it is easy to see what you are doing.
