By request—a few patterns for the 2″ square loom. Many of these were experiments, but you can play around with them too.

#1

**R1:** P

**R2-7:** P2, U3, P3, U3, P4

**R8:** P

#2

**R1: **P

**Even Rows: **P2, (U3, O1) x 2, U3, P2

**Odd Rows:** (U3, O1) x 3, U3

**R8:** P

#2 Variation

**R1: **P

**Even Rows: **P2, (U3, O1) x 2, U3, P2

**Odd Rows:** P4, U3, O1, U3, P4

**R8:** P

#3

**R1: **P

**Even Rows: **P3, O3, U3, O3, P3

**Odd Rows:** U3, P9, U3

**R8:** P

#4

**R1: **P

**Even Rows:** (U3, P3) x 2, U3

**Odd Rows:** (P3, O3) x 2, P3

**R8:** P

#5

**R1: **P

**Even Rows: **U1, (O2, U2) x 3, O2

**Odd Rows:** P

**R8:** P

It would probably be better to P3 at the end of each row; this would result in a large band of plain weave at top and right edges. Reversing R2 and combining four squares (two of each) might make an interesting four-patch.

#6

**R1: **P

**Even Rows: **U1, (O2, U2) x 3, P2

**Odd Rows:** (U1, O3) x 3, P3

**R8:** P

#7

**R1: **P

**R2-7: **(U1, O3) x 3, P2

**R8:** P

#7 looks better on the back than the front.

#8 (Same as #6 for now)

**R1: **P

**Even Rows: **U1, (O2, U2) x 3, P2

**Odd Rows:** (U1, O3) x 3, P3

**R8:** P

#9

**R1: **P

**Even Rows: **U1, O3, P7, O3, U1

**Odd Rows:** P4, U3, O1, U3, P4

**R8:** P

#10

**R1: **P

**Even Rows: **P2, (U2, O2) x 3, U1

**Odd Rows:** P3, (O3, U1) x 3

**R8:** P

Sample shows **R4:** P

#10 looks better on the back than the front.

#11

**R1: **P

**Even Rows: **P2, (U3, O1) x 2, U3, P2

**Odd Rows:** P

**R8:** P

#12

**R1: **P

**Even Rows: **P2, (U3, O1) x 2, U3, P2

**Odd Rows:** P4, U3, O1, U3, P4

**R8:** P

Lovely!!

I was hoping you would get around to designing for the sweet 2″ squares.

Thanks

Lee

These were all designed in 2015, so what I’m getting around to is typing them up . . . I do have a few newer ones though, so I’ll get to those too. Sleep? What’s that?

Thanks! My 2″ loom is on its way from Wunderwag, and now I’ll have some ideas to begin with.

I hope you saw the blanket on the FB Pin Loom group. That’s another good idea for using 2″ squares.

What is the base pattern for the warp of these? is it two layer or three? Am I missing some basic know how? My vintage weave-it loom had only one instruction for three layer base and I have stumbled into some other stuff out of my tablet, finger weave and inkle work but somehow can’t seem to think my way out of a sleeping bag today.

Unless otherwise specified my patterns are all three-layer warp. One indication is the scallop edges on the squares (although I’ve learned how to make the scallop appear on two-layer warp patterns as well). If I had diagrammed these you could easily tell by looking at the diagram. Another indication is that instructions are given for 8 rows rather than 15.
