Patriotic Headband

Step by step instructions on weaving a patriotic headband with pot holder loops

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. Here are the step by step instructions to make it easy.

  • Pot Holder Weaving Loops approximately 12 blue and about 20 each of white and red.
  • 3 White Stars
  • Needle and Thread
  • Fingers
  1. Wrap the first loop around your pinky. Twist it one half turn and loop it around your ring finger.
  2. Twist it another half loop and loop it around your middle finger. Another half twist and then around your index finger.
  3. Repeat with the second loop.
  4. Stretch out the bottom loop from your pinkie. Lift it over the top loop and stretch it over to the back of your pinkie.
  5. 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.
  6. If you need to take a break, slide a pencil or pen through the working loops as you remove them from your fingers.
  7. To finish, bring the ends together, holding the loops. Interweave the end loops through the beginning loops
  8. Tie loops together using a double knot. Sew three stars on the blue sections using a needle and thread.

    This is a cute idea only you did not inform us what you are using here for the headband itself. Are these the loops for making pot holders or hot pads that come with children’s looms? How many do we need of each color approximately?.
