Instructions

This design measures approximately 6.75 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the length woven.
  1. Please begin by watching our video: How to do Right Angle Weave. From what you learned in the video, thread your needle with a length of thread you are comfortable working with. I recommend starting with 6 to 8 feet. Please note that you can always work with a smaller length of thread and tie it off and start a new thread.
  2. Leaving a tail of 8 to 12 inches, begin your right angle weave. For this pattern you will be creating a striped pattern. You can see how to do this in this video: How to Create a Striped Pattern in Right Angle Weave. So to begin, pick up two red and two white beads. Follow along with the video to create the striped pattern. Note: This Candy Cane design is two units wide so you have the option to work to create the whole length either by going long ways and coming back to the start or working your way up and down to create both unit rows at the same time. Please note that if you work long ways and come back to the beginning you will have to add additional thread to the other end to complete the clasp. For this reason, I recommend working both rows at the same time as long as you keep up with the pattern. In this case you may find it helpful to follow along with the photo of the project.
  3. Finally, please watch our video: How to Attach a Magnetic Clasp to Right Angle Weave. In this video you will learn how attach the clasp and how to tie off and weave in your threads.
