Weaving a Flower of Life pattern on a Hexagon with spool knitted cord by Noreen Crone-Findlay is the subject of today’s video. Here is what Noreen has to say about her video:
“This video tutorial by Noreen Crone-Findlay shows how to weave the ‘Flower of Life’ pattern on the Lily Speed o Weave Loom, but any other hexagonal loom will work just as well. In this video, spool knitted cord is used as the ‘yarn’, but, any kind of yarn, lucet cord, wire, ribbon, fabric strips, t shirt yarn, roving, string or cord, even video cassette tapes, all work as well.”
This detailed, step by step tutorial is a gem. Noreen throughly explains what she does and the common mistakes she has made in the past so you can easily create your Flower of Life pattern mandala.

“According to Stephen Skinner, the study of sacred geometry has its roots in the study of nature, and the mathematical principles at work therein. Many forms observed in nature can be related to geometry, for example, the chambered nautilus grows at a constant rate and so its shell forms a logarithmic spiral to accommodate that growth without changing shape. Also, honeybees construct hexagonal cells to hold their honey. These and other correspondences are sometimes interpreted in terms of sacred geometry and considered to be further proof of the natural significance of geometric forms.”
