Strike while the iron’s hot. Two posts in one day! Turns out I could get the desired effect by using the Reverse Warping Method. (If I do say so myself, that is an excellent tutorial.) Note that the pattern is not centered on the square. On the left border you see complete “stars;” on the right you see 2/3 stars.Read More →
One of the reasons I began the reversible pattern exploration was because I wanted patterns that could be used on a rigid heddle loom as well as a pin loom. It’s a bit easier to weave samples on the pin loom. I think this particular design looks good if you turn the square clockwise one turn, but as usual, you can’t duplicate that look without doing some fancy weave-work (like two-layer weaving or maybe reverse warping). We’ll see if that ever materializes…
I’ve been locked out of my blog for a long time, so I’m finally able to post again. Whew.
About a year ago I fiddled around with some patterns that look roughly the same on both sides of the square. I call them … reversible! Some looked better than others and I’m in the process of diagramming them on the computer (still prefer to design on paper). Here’s the first one.

A blog reader contacted me the other day and asked if I’d ever designed a Greek alphabet for pin loom squares. I hadn’t. Till now.Read More →
It looks like it’s been over two years since I lasted posted. I’m not sure how the blog works anymore. And I have over 500 subscribers… Wow!!!Read More →
The Charms series patterns are among my favorites that use Warp Displacement. When I was exploring warp displacement last year I spent a lot of time figuring out exactly how to get this sucked-in X look and how best to complement the shape. For warp displacement patterns, these are quite easy to do.
