Finger Weaving Instructions with Carol James

Carol teaches you to fingerweave, beginning with a project with 8 strands of yarn, and resulting in a friendship bracelet or bookmark. She then shows you a more efficient manner to hold and manipulate larger numbers of threads.

The video takes you stepwise through a series of traditional fingerwoven patterns, building from simple to more complex. Carol shows you how to execute the pattern with threads, and also how to map the patterns using graph paper. Follow the patterns on the attached handout.

Also included is a section on mistakes, how to detect mistakes, how to correct, and how to avoid mistakes in the first place.

Customer reviews:

,This video answered a lot of questions I had. It was very easy to understand. I have been trying to do the arrow pattern for a long time, I have books, watched other videos the visuals just weren’t where I could understand. I watched this video and now I get it. Carol James starts you out small and progresses to the next level. You ll be able to do each of the patterns she has shown. Thank you Carol James I love this video it was worth the wait.
