Sign up now for “Victoria’s Secrets” mini mystery: you can knit it, crochet it, weave it, or sew it! From now until the 31 May/2015 it is just $1.00, instead of the regular price of $2.95–use the coupon code found on the pattern page. One pattern will show you all these options to make a quick little accessory based on a Victorian sewing pattern! You can use any yarn, with the right sized needles or hook–because you will cast on or make the beginning chain a certain length, instead of a specified number of stitches 🙂 You can use weaving sticks to make them…or upcycle a felted wool sweater; try making a shabby chic/boho set, too!
If you want to purchase a set of weaving sticks they are $4 each in sets, minimum of 4 sticks
(4 for $16, or 6 for $24, 8 for $32): hand made from local Comox Valley wood. Ships within 7-10 days. For the Victoria’s Secret pattern I am using 8 weaving sticks.
These are handcrafted from Vancouver Island reclaimed wood sticks, each one is unique and special! No two are identical, and will have slight bends and some will have some inner bark left on. Just send me a private message on Facebook and I’ll get back to you with a Paypal invoice that includes shipping to your postal code/zip code. Weaving sticks are easy to use and a lot of fun for making scarves, too! Even young children can use them.
They are fun for making “skinny scarves” using as few as 4 sticks; you can use several strands of yarn at once to make weaving really fast! Great stashbusters! There are more photos here on my Facebook page.
