I haven’t woven these two patterns, but I know they looked good as 4″ squares.
I offer them here for the 6″ loom.
NOTE ABOUT READING PATTERNS FROM CHARTS
The chart (or diagram) is a really lovely tool. Not only is it useful when designing, but it’s also useful when weaving. Obviously you get a preview of what the design looks like, but it also makes pattern sharing almost foolproof. I don’t have to transcribe a bunch of letters and numbers nor count a bunch of stitches.
When a pattern is a mirror image of itself—as most of this one is—you don’t need to know how many plain weave (or U3) stitches there are in a row. Just count forward up to the center line, then count backward after you hit it, e.g. if you’re supposed to plain weave 9 stitches (P9), count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5—center line—4, 3, 2, 1. This has saved me gallons of time and has spared my eye sight as well. Try it out!
Wow, thank you for the updated diagrams! Very clear now 🙂
Thanks for bringing the need to my attention. Always trying to improve the quality of my offerings. 🙂
