This is a fun, simple, and beautiful pattern. It comes from the Orignal Loomette Weaves pattern book (pattern design chart included below), but I altered it slightly so the stitches are centered and don’t run off the edges of the square. All ways of warping and weaving this pattern look nice, I think.
Staggered Stars — Note: this pattern is practically the same as “Like a Diamond”, but its spacing is slightly different. (Can’t find “Like a Diamond” for the 31 x 31 loom, so I may need to post that next!)
Recommended two-color warping: L1-2 in lighter color, L3-4 in darker color. (Don’t use high contrast colors—see photo at bottom of post.)
Shout out to Brian Whitley for naming this pattern; his was one that jumped out at me as I read, and stuck with me later on when I wasn’t at the computer. I had a hard time selecting a name from the many excellent suggestions made by the members of the Facebook Pin Loom Weaving Support Group. (I’d run out of ideas for names and had resorted to calling my new designs Uuuuh 1, Uuuuh 2, etc. “A Run on Diamonds” was formerly known as Uuuuh 4b.)
So far I only have a two-layer warp (2LW) design chart for the 8″ loom, and it has no numbers. Working on perfecting it. Will update this post as I update my life…
So far I don’t have a chart for two-layer warping (2LW) on a 6″, or 47 x 47, loom. After I design a pattern for it, I’ll upload it. Read More →
If you’ve wanted to try Two-Layer Warping (2LW) patterns, but are intimidated by the complicated 4″ patterns, this size might be a good place to start.
