How to Circle Weave | Tutorial

We are using the book “Classical Kids An Activity Guide to Life in Ancient Greece and Rome” by Laurie Carlson as inspiration of this project.

You can find the book at

For this project you will need embroidery string or floss, cardboard or chipboard, scissors, yarn, a bowl to make a circle and a shuttle (we used a popsicle stick). Optional: compass, protractor, knitting needle.

Some supplies can be found at A Child’s Dream.

For a circle with a diameter of about 5″, the project takes about an hour to do.

Level: easy

The only complicated part of this project is making sure you wind the string around the notches correctly. Make sure you have an odd number.
