The problem with saving up new patterns and posting them two or three months later is that confusion often sets in—can’t tell what this one is even though it says it’s this, but it doesn’t match the diagram. Spent the day figuring out these patterns only to reject the two in question (saved you the trouble).

    This is lovely. I think you could make a pretty woven sweater from these. They remind me of the cables in an arran. Just do the edgings in knitting or crochet.

      Thank you! It’s nice to hear what inspires others. A sweater would be pretty.

        Well I don’t knit, so I’m always trying to find a way to make similar patterns in crochet or the weaving. I’ve been crocheting mostly, sore hands again. I’ve got one crochet project or two to finish, then it’s back to weaving.
        I’ve got two new small looms coming in soon. I also want to build some different sizes of weave it style looms. I’d like to build an 8 inch, 10 inch, 12 inch, and one large enough for tea towels. I thought it would be really great, though a lot of work to actually be able to weave a tea towel on one.
        I’m preparing to down size, and am selling my rigid heddles. I’ve not had a place to set them up for years, it’s a waste to have them in boxes. So I’m going for the smaller looms. Your patterns and the others I have will give me a chance to keep weaving an making useful items.

          That’s sad about your rigid heddle looms being in boxes. I’m starting to explore rigid heddle weaving, particularly with patterns (sort of crossing over from the pin loom to the RH loom). I’m hoping to purchase a sample-it loom to keep always warped up so I can practice patterns on it. (It’s hard having my larger loom tied up with a practice warp and it’s a waste of practice warp if I hurry to finish it in order to free up the loom.)

          There’s a loom called a Loomette King which is placemat sized. It’s difficult to find on eBay, but no reason you can’t make one yourself if you’re up to it.

          There’s a template for a 12″ square loom in the templates post ( You can make any size template from those here on the blog by printing, cutting and taping together to size up or down. I do it often; in fact, I’m embarking on making 2″ x 8″ and 3″ x 8″ looms for a particular project.)

          I find that even the 6″ square can be a bit hard on my wrists and fingers. Please try out the larger sizes gradually before going to the work of building all the looms!

          I wish you success in your loom making and large pin loom weaving endeavors.
