Eye Of God Yarn Craft

Ojo de Dios or Eye of God yarn craft is a great way to use up any odd balls of yarn you may have. These God's eye are really easy to make once you know how, and you can experiment with lots of different finishes.

I love these type of recycled crafts as you can use those scraps that are not much use for anything else. If you don't have any left over wool from other projects then have look around discount stores or charity shops for some great bargains.

If you are using short lengths of yarn just tie the 2 pieces together. For a neat finish try to make sure the knots are placed at the back of the weaving preferably behind one of the sticks.

This is the third page of the tutorial  if you would like to start at the beginning go to how to make a God's eye  for page 1.
