R is for Winter . . .
I haven’t woven these two patterns, but I know they looked good as 4″ squares.
I offer them here for the 6″ loom.
One of my favorite joking statements is, “I’m falling apart, won’t you join me?”
Our pin loom squares, while not falling apart, still need to be joined if you want to produce some sort of finished product. There are many ways to join squares: duct tape, glue, sewing machine . . . But for a more organic result, you’ll most likely want to use yarn. And why not use those pesky ends that need to be woven in anyway? (My friend prefers to not use yarn tails because of the danger of puckering the squares as she pulls the stitches, so that’s something to consider.)
They don’t have names yet. I’m taking suggestions—please comment.
Thanks to Joanna and Beverly for suggesting names that helped me decide what to call these patterns!
Had to take a break from blogging to eat and play with the dogs. Now, back to “Isles” variations.
Isles — Variation 5
I think I had islands on my mind on 12 October—the West Indies, Saint Marie, Puerto Rico . . . This pattern is also named after the letter I because I wove that variation first. (A lot of my patterns come out I-shaped; it’s one way to break up repetitive rows.)
