Hair tie

Here is a quick project. Please excuse the blurry phone camera picture.

My niece Maggie had her birthday party last month. I wrapped her gift with paper and tied it off with 4 strands of #3 crochet thread in different colors. After she unwrapped her gift I told her to save the threads and get a safety pin. Using the safety pin to anchor the end to a tablecloth, I tried to show her a four strand braid, but for the life of me I couldn't get it to work!

So I showed her how to fingerweave it. She made quick work of it, weaving up a 4 foot long band which she used as a hair tie. 12 year olds can be so crafty.

Have a good day!
