This was first posted in November 2015 on the Facebook Pin Loom Weaving Support Group; designed by Jody Delisle. Here you get a glimpse of someone else’s style of notation. I’ve also included a diagram. Read 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.
Here’s another Christmas motif . . . the time-honored bell. I think it looks best as an outline, but the solid version also looked pretty good to me. The double outline did NOT look good, so I don’t recommend trying it.
I don’t believe real angels have wings, but woven ones certainly can.
The blue marks indicate OVER 3. They are not optional. Go O3 (blue), U3 (red), O3 (blue).
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.
And here’s yet another pattern I developed for the Facebook Pin Loom Weaving Support Group September 2017 Square Swap. The Star is one I’ve attempted before without success—the drawing was so bad I never even wove a sample. But this time around something clicked. I tried a couple different versions and this one turned out really nice, I think. (If you’re not in love with it, feel free to design your own.) Again, I only wove two-color samples, in LOTS of colors—I think I prefer white as the main color though (L1-3: white, L4: contrast color). You can see that I used variegated yarn in some of the samples. I think it works as long as the colors blend well and are the same value (low-contrast).
Here’s another pattern I polished up for the Facebook Pin Loom Weaving Support Group September 2017 Square Swap. I originally worked on several, several, SEVERAL Christmas tree patterns in June 2016. I became SO SICK of them that I couldn’t bring myself to work on them again till a whole year-plus had passed; I even got tired of using green yarn—ME, I know!!!
Guess what? I finally decided that “Christmas Tree 1” looked the best. But hey, I tried just about everything (including several iterations of a tiered tree—you know, two triangles stacked on each other—didn’t look so good, but I may post some of them anyway because you might like them).
