    DS 6 started this poject today. We are using an 8″ inch hoop with 19 spokes (the weaving base), standard worsted wight acrylic yarn. He is making cup coasters. Cotton yarn would probably work better than acrylic, but we are using what we had on hand.

    He just spend about 30 minutes working on it.

    This looks really neat. How do you take it off the hoop?

    clip the threads that are wrapped around and then tie the ends into knots.

    here is a link to the original page that has better instructions with the pictures. original page

    I think DS likes it because it comes together quickly. The right balance between challenge and completion

    This is great!  Thanks.  I love it when our projects are useful and not just something to find a place for.
