Cut 6 yards from both colors of ribbon.
Holding both together tie a knot about 6 inches from the end.
(My ends looks shorter so I could show them in the pictures)
Take the ribbon from the back (Green) and make a loop towards you. Keeping it still behind the top ribbon (Violet).
Now take the top ribbon (Violet) and wrap it up and over the loop made in the back ribbon (Green).
Push the Violet ribbon up and into the loop in the Green ribbon, making a second loop.
Pull the Green loop snug by pulling on the Green ribbon.
Push the Green ribbon up and into the Violet loop. Then pull the Violet ribbon snug around the new Green loop.
Always make your loops in the same direction, either always towards you or always away from you.
Repeat Steps 4 & 5 until you have 1 yard of woven ribbon.
When your ready to end you weave, stop on a Green loop. Push the tail of the Violet ribbon through the loop. Not forming a new loop, just going straight though.
Pull the Green loop snug around the Violet ribbon.
Fold the Green ribbon upwards, so the Green ribbon is pointing in the same direction as the Violet ribbon.
Holding both ribbons tails together tie a knot. Trim the tails to be 6 inches long.
To wear your new Hawai'ian Ribbon Lei, tie the 6 inch tails together.
You can try this weave with many different sizes and styles of ribbon to get new Lei looks. For example, using two green colors and wider ribbon makes the Lei look like it was really woven from palms!
