Come join the fun, if you haven’t already. Set your own goals—maybe a square each day…or two, three, more?
If you’re not a member of the Facebook Pin Loom Weaving Support Group, you might want to join. We’ve got such a great group of creatives over there I can’t keep up with all their ideas.
There are several options for our Winter Weave-Along project. I’ll start with the basic idea which one of my Facebook pin loom buddies, Sarah Hluchy, contributed. It’s a variation on the Fall Banner.
From A to Zed, but still missing lots in between.
Also, still missing Zed.
In an attempt to make my alphabet letters more consistent with each other, I felt the need to thicken the legs on letter A. The changes are shown in green. I haven’t woven this option yet, but I believe it will look fine.

For the outline pumpkin it’s OK to use high contrast yarn. I think the Fall Banner will look better with solid-fill patterns than outlines, but this Pumpkin Outline might be useful for other purposes.
The Pumpkin Outline is a more natural pumpkin shape, not uniform from side to side.

For the last pattern in the Fall Banner project, you get to choose the one you like best.
When I first thought up the project idea I had already designed the pumpkin. After I started laying out my squares, however, I realized the pumpkin was the only one that was an outline—rather than a filled-in shape. I thought the outline didn’t look good with the others.
But then I had new problems.
