Years and years ago I was taught how to make beautiful little "puff" flowers on this circular cardboard loom.  But I have forgotten how to do it.  Has anyone out there ever used this type loom.  The circle is notched, divided into "pie" sections.  Somehow you "warp" the loom then fill in the circle with yarn strung onto a weaving needle.  When it's all filled in you somehow lift each "petal" off the loom and pull a thread of yarn somehow and it creates a beautiful little "puff" flower...resembling a rose or ranunculus flower.

Here is a picture of the cardboard loom.

on string one wrap yarn arouund (be sure to wrap over first pulling under and then over once more to string 2 then the next string clockwise to that one complete going clockwise till you fill its big enough and then tie off

step 4 remove the hoops on the loom move away from loom

step 5 pull each loop indevidualy it will start to curl and you have your flower ^_^
