What You Need
- Picture Frame
- Wool scraps
- Embroidery thread
- To make the landscape weaving, you need two tones of blue, yellow and white yarn. This is a great opportunity to use some yarn scraps. Start by knotting the embroidery thread to one of the short sides of the frame. Then wind it back and forth from one side to another as shown in the picture. When you're done, tie the yarn with a knot and cut off excess.
- Use a thicker yarn to wrap all around the frame for a neat look. Now start working on the mountains. Knot the blue yarn in the lower right corner (or wherever you want to place your mountain), on the back of the work. Thread your needle and start weaving the mountain, alternatively putting the needle over and under the embroidery thread. Work in a triangular shape, and stop just before the peak, knotting the thread on the back. Change with white thread to make the snow peaks.
- Use the other shade of blue for the second mountain. Use the same technique as above, including the snow peaks. You can also use the white yarn to make a cloud, yellow for the sun, or whatever else you like!
