Our Weaved Threadz Scarf

My eight year old daughter's new found interest is weaving, so she found it fun to do this Threadz scarf kit with me. Each kit valued at $25 comes with instructions, yarn and the necessary tools. This scarf kit has 2 weaving looms and 1 shuttle. We like the bright thick red yarn and the plum, red, grape and blackberry feather yarn that comes in the kit. 
I started off and helped my daughter with this project, so she was able to repeat and do some weaving lines on her own. Although, the kit can be made in a couple of hours we are taking our time and doing a little each day.
We found it little difficult to start off and understand the instructions and then finally figured it out :) Children will need help in starting each colour and putting the knots to the thread and shuttle each time. I am glad all the measurements are done for us and the threads are cut into the appropriate size.

There are three different Threadz kits that allow us to make a Beanie, Scarf or Purse. This hand weaved scarf is perfect for the upcoming cold weather and is a wonderful project to do after school :)
