Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Step 1
First gather a couple of strings that you will use.. contrasting colours look the best :)
you can use six (or more) different colours , or you could use two , .
i am using two because i think that it looks the best.
Step 2: Step 2
Next cut the pieces of string to the size that you like,
long or short, it doesnt really matter , you just dont want to make it too short , becasue it is alot harder if it is really really short..
then you tie the strings up together at the top,
NOTE: make sure that if you are doing yyour plat with two strings, make sure that the same colour isnt next to eachother,
example.. black , white , black , white , ..
Step 3: Step 3
using string 1 , weave it over and under the other strings , make sure when you get to the end to keep it away from the other strings , and pull it tight , not to tight though because you might ruin it.
Step 4: Step 4
after youve done each weave, make sure that you reorder your colours in the order they were supposed to be in when you begun.
Step 5: Step 5
you keep on weaving across, and always starting with whatever side that you originally started with ,
For me its my left side.
Good luck , any questions ask away,.. :)
