At first I couldn’t think of a better pattern for the letter M than inverting the W, but then I played around with it. Here are both patterns. I’ve woven the W, but neither of the Ms.
This letter will make a good tutorial on reading a chart. For now, here is the pattern.
You didn’t think I’d go all corny and name my pattern after a famous song did you?
My snowman is named after a semi-famous song.
You get two choices here. The green marks indicate optional stitches.
R is for Winter . . .
I haven’t woven these two patterns, but I know they looked good as 4″ squares.

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.)
