Patriotic Red, White & Blue Windsock
1 brass ring 6”
58 Yards each of red,
white & royal Bonnie Braid 6MM
Cut 16 cords of each
color in 3 ½ yard pieces. Larks head them onto the 6” ring 8 cords
per color around the ring. You will have a red, white & blue section twice
on the ring. You will have 96 cords now hanging down.
Do 12 rows of square
Start with a blue section
and leave 1 cord hanging and braid the next 6 cords together then leave 1
blue hanging. Do the same for each section around the windsock. Use
elastics to keep the braids together. When complete you will have 2 cords
hanging between each braid. Cover the elastics by wrapping cord of
the same color twice around the elastic and fusing the cord to the back.
Leave 10” of a tail on each cord and fuse the ends of them.
Cut 2 cords of each color
3 ft. long and braid together to make the hanger.
Attach to opposite sides of the windsock by knotting 3 cords to 3 cords around the ring. (knot will be inside the windsock.) Then cut excess and fuse to the inside of the windsock.
