Yaʔ Dunəy shows how to start off a different kind of sleeping mat, where you weave out from one edge only, rather than from the middle out on each side. This is a quick and easy way, but you can't make a bigger one - so its common for young girls to make this when they are still learning. She was starting it off for her daughter to finish
