There’s less explanation in this post, so if you need photos of the individual procedures, see:
This post begins a series of two-layer warping (2LW) instructions. I haven’t done much exploring of this weaving method, and haven’t invented many patterns yet. There are a number of patterns available in 100 Pin Loom Squares by Florencia Campos Correa and there are a few available in the vintage pattern booklets on eLoomaNation.com. And I’m in the process of inventing more.
Please check out my video series demonstrating the techniques described in this and the following posts.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR ONE-COLOR SQUARE—two options
(I’m using stretchy wool for these squares, so it’s OK to warp more snugly.)
Samples featuring pink yarn and the Zoom Loom are the most basic method for 2LW. If you want to eliminate all the fancy distractions, follow those photos. By the way, if you are a Zoom Loom user, I strongly recommend you purchase a longer needle to make weaving more comfortable with its wide frame.
The turquoise yarn/cream-colored Weave-It photos will show how to prepare the loom if you wish to work the beginning yarn tail in as you weave. It also shows a warping variation at Cr2 that might make weaving a bit easier.
1) BASIC ONE-COLOR WARPING
Continuing my adventures in weaving with cotton—it’s been too-long overlooked by me. I wondered how it would behave in the Two-Layer-Warping (2LW) method—would it be easier to weave? It’s been nearly two years since I spent much time exploring 2LW, so I figured it’s time to pull it out of hibernation.
