Let this be a lesson to me: don’t post old patterns without exploring them further. The Recessed Square pattern I posted earlier today (and I do mean earlier) was technically a rectangle—which I knew at the time. With very little trouble I added a couple of rows and came up with a square-within-a-square design. Here it is.

For those who don’t understand the note: “I like this with L1-3/4”–it means I think it looks good to warp the loom with Layers 1-3 in one color and switch colors for the weaving layer (L4). You can find instructions on switching colors for different layers by Searching: “Two-color series.” To switch colors for L4 only, see this post.

One Thought on “Recessed Square 2 — 4″ (31 x 31) pattern

  1. Kathryn on 31 March 2020 at 3:11 PM said:

    Hi Sue, I just love this pattern. However, I’m not seeing the difference between the recessed square one pattern and the recessed square two pattern. Also, do you have a written pattern?

    Lastly, what does your note ” I like this one with L1 – 3/4″ mean?

    I’m a newbie weaver, so any help is appreciated!
