Part Three: Begin the Weaving

Previous Home Next


Now you begin to weave by folding back each unfolded strip and folding the folded strips over the new strip. Confused? The process is a simple over one, under one weave. Because lauhala allows you to fold back and crease the strips, the weaving is easier, and the folding back and creasing actually locks the new strips in as they are woven. While it may be confusing at first, this keeps the weaving nice and tight. Continue to weave in the new strip. In the picture, I am lifting a previously unfolded strip back over the new strip (weaving toward the bottom of the picture).
