Earning Young Cultivator Merit Badges

Stitching & Crafting

2. Weaving In And Out

Beginner Level

  • Get three strands of yarn a bit longer than what you need to wrap around your wrist.
    1. Tape the three strands together on one end.
    2. Tape the taped end to a table.
    3. Braid the three strands together.
    4. Tie off the ends.
    You now have a friendship band.

Intermediate Level

  • Now, repeat the beginnerís process creating a second friendship band. This time you are making it for someone that is special to you. Feel free to use different fibers as an experiment.

Expert Level

  • Wear the band for a week, sharing what it symbolizes with anyone who asks. Show off your creations to your family, a school or homeschool club, a local Farmgirl Chapter, or a Young Cultivators group by sharing with them to whom you gave your friendship band and why.
