Of course you can make the weave into any traditional weaving pattern. Yarn a hole or just make a sampler, it’s a lot of fun.
You will need:
yarn or embroidery floss (varying colors optional)
Embroidery or cross stitch fabric
- Start by sewing the yarn back and forth. When you turn: make a stitch, turn, make a stitch, and then do the long stitch that will be the base of your weave. This will make it more stable. Change color if you want a more complicated pattern.
- When you have a square, start going the other direction. Make a stitch, weave, make a stitch, turn, make a stitch, weave and so on. Depending on how you weave (over 2, under 2, or over 3, under 1) you will get different patterns. Just try it, you will see.
- Change the color of the yarn along the way if you like.
