Weaving allows you to create a totally different kind of fabric from knitting & crocheting, opening up your world to even more possibilities. In this month's YarnPlay, we're exploring fun with an amazing toy, woven (and finished with an i-cord trim) on the Martha Stewart CraftsTM Knit & Weave Loom Kit.
Designer Noreen Crone-Findlay has created this wonderful woven elephant toy by using several different configurations of the loom.

Once you have these basic shapes down, you could recombine them for all kinds of creatures-- make an entire menagerie for the children in your life!

As always, we hope you'll keep playing and keep creating!
