Hi everyone from a Winter Wonderland. It is snowing here! Very very early this year, to my opinion. Time to make warm shawls. Or wraps to keep us warm and feel comfortable. Weaving squares and triangles (see here) on a pin loom can be used to make these. I don’t have worked out patterns for these here on this website, but you can probably find enough examples on the internet to inspire you! For now: a new video, about finishing edges with a crochet border. It’s optional, because you can decide not to use crochet borders, and just sew blocks together. But a crochet borderRead More →

Is it possible to weave triangular shapes on a square pin loom? Yes, you can! And that is what I will show you in this tutorial! If you don’t remember exactly how to weave a square on the bias, just look here for that tutorial (with links to the video’s!).. Looking back for a moment to weaving on the bias With ‘regular’ weaving on the bias, you started with putting the first thread on the loom from bottom left to the upper right (from nr 1 to nr 2) and you went around the upper 2 nails (from nr 2 to nr 3). In step 2 you brought the thread back downRead More →

Maybe you wonder: what is a timelapse video??? And why??? Repeating the content of the previous video’s Well, in my previous video’s I already showed quite elaborately how to weave with a continuous strand of yarn on a pin loom. So it’s maybe a bit useless to repeat that all over again. But I used  yarn for these instruction video’s, that actually was too thin for weaving on this loom. On the other hand, you could see everthing quite clearly, and that is what I found the most important. This time, however, I wanted to show how it goes ‘for real’, when you work withRead More →

If you want to work work with several colors of solid colored yarns, and you would like to add stripes in your weave yourself, a plaid motif, you can do that! It’s quite simple. The only thing you have to do is cut off the yarn and attach a new one, and continue weaving like you worked with the original thread. But I will explain it further. Where do you change colors Actually you can do color changes at every place you would like to. But usually you do it in a ‘balanced’ way. In the drawing you can see that, for example, you haveRead More →
