For the original post of this pattern see Hearts and Diamonds Overshot. This is a really beautiful pattern in the Pin Loom “overshot” technique. I have this theory that all “overshot” patterns can also be woven using the 2LW method, so I started with the first one I learned: Amber Vigil’s. With her permission, I share my rendition of the pattern here.

If you need instructions on two-layer-warping (2LW), please see instructions in the posts linked below. The first post tells how to warp the loom and weave Row 1. The second post shows the needle path (where to enter and exit the loom) for the first eight rows of a 2LW pattern. For this pattern, follow the diagram below, but follow the needle path instructions; they are universal for all 2LW patterns.

Maybe I just don’t do yellow well. By way of excuse, I don’t have a lot of color choices in wool.
(I didn’t add row 32 in this square.)
