Suzanne Eakin, member of the Facebook Pin Loom Weaving Support Group and a prolific pin loom project artist, has given me permission to post her weaving pattern (and photos) here on my blog.
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.
Judie Eatough won’t take credit for this pretty weaving draft, but she readied it for the pin loom and brought it to our attention. These are her comments: “Here is a pattern for the dogwood blossom that is a traditional Atwater-Bronson lace pattern. This one uses 3 thread warp floats. The photo is of the unwashed square done in acrylic yarn. The petals round some because the plain weave pushes into the lace areas. Use a yarn that gives you a firm plain weave square.”
One of my blog readers, Lee Ross, contacted me recently for some advice on designing a dog paw print pattern. I gave her a little advice and she sent me these wonderful results! With her permission, I share her design with you. “Molly’s Paw”—copyright Lee Ross.
