Suzie’s Flower Loom (round) and included needle (available from spotlight)
- Step 1: Starting on prong at the 6 o’clock position, take yarn up to left side of prong at the 12 o’clock position and wrap around from left to right. Go back down to the 6 o’clock position and wrap from right to left. Repeat with a left-to-right wrap at 1 o’clock and a right-to-left wrap at 7 o’clock. Continue working clockwise around prongs until they are all covered. A few projects call for multiple wraps. Refer to project instructions for appropriate number, and repeat as required.
- Step 2: Leave a tail of about 60cm, then cut yarn. Using needle provided with loom, take tail and stitch into centre of flower, then come up between petals 11 and 12 o’clock. Stitch back into the centre, then come up between petals 12 and 1 o’clock.
- Step 3: Continue clockwise to create a centre.
- Step 4: Thread tail through centre and tie off neatly. Cut tail close to knot or leave long, if required, to stitch to other flowers.
- Step 5: Release finished flower from prongs by twisting handle.
