To Make Daisies

(Note from Sarah: For full photo tutorials and videos see the instructions for winding your loom and working an overcast centre)

Place wheel knob downwards in left hand. Put wool on flat side of wheel and hold in position in centre with thumb of left hand.

Wind wool over a point of wheel and over point exactly opposite; rep this twice, taking care not to cross wool in centre (3 loops on both points).

Pass to next point and its opposite and wind wool in same manner. Rep. until all points are used. (12 petals.)

Break off wool 6 ins. from wheel, thread a darning needle and stitch over and over diagonally between each petal in centre of daisy.

Draw into a firm centre by running needle under all threads of wool at centre. Finish by sewing between all petals through all strands at centre.
