To create a chair seat, first make five loops and push them together. Depending on the size of the chair, you can make up to 10 ‘five loop’ sections. Once you’ve completed all five sections, cut the rope tail. Then use a crochet hook to tuck in any loose strands. This process will result in a woven seat. Afterward, attach a seat pad by weaving the rope between the seat and the back.
Filling gaps between the top and bottom strands to add support
To weave a rope seat for a chair, make five ‘five loop’ sections and wrap them around the seat pole. You can weave in either direction, but weaving in the opposite direction will be easier. Weave the rope lengthwise around the chair seat, going around the opposite seat pole and back under the chair. Your goal is to form one continuous loop. Don’t pull too tight. You want it taut enough to hold its shape, but not so tight that you’re uncomfortable sitting in it.
To weave the seat, begin by weaving the first strand. Then, weave the second strand using the same method. Tie the second rope with an overhand knot at the intersection of the top and bottom strands. Once you have woven the first strand, tie the strand of the rope to the next spoke. Repeat the process until you’ve finished the chair seat.
