Yarn Lei Making Class

Tuesday, February 24, 2004

6:30 - 8:00 p.m. at KKHS


        If you’re interested in learning to make any of the 11 leis below, contact PCNC June Kaneshiro at 573-8710 or e-mail her at june_kaneshiro@notes.k12.hi.us to reserve a space for you. Choose the lei you plan to make, buy your supplies & bring to class. Please call if you have questions. 

A.     All of the ribbon in the leis are 1/8" polyester ribbon that come on spools of 100 yards.

B.     You also need a Crochet Needle. I used the “J” sized needle on all of these leis.

C.     Kukui nuts to finish off the lei on either end. Two for each lei.

D.     A small pair of scissors.
