Hand weave a Patriotic Headband to show your colors for the USA in the Olympic games or for any of our many patriotic holidays. Other countries can adapt colors to match their flags.
Weaving Loops sold at craft stores and on line
Wrap the first loop around your pinky. Twist it one half turn and loop it around your ring finger.
Twist it another half loop and loop it around your middle finger. Another half twist and then around your index finger.
Repeat with the second loop.
Stretch out the bottom loop from your pinky. Lift it over the top loop and stretch it over to the back of your pinky.
Do the same with the loops on the other three fingers. Continue weaving. The headband will start to form down the back of your hand.
If you need to take a breakk, slide a pencil or pen through the working loops as you remove them from your fingers.
To finish, bring the ends together, holding the loops. Interveave the end loos through the beginning loops
Tie loops together using a double knot. Sew three stars on the blue sections using a needle and thread.
