3 Colors for casting on, how to do that? That’s what I was wondering about, after I learned how to do the versions with 2 colors. I started trying out things, and this is what I figured out. It is not that hard, but you really have to pay attention to the order of the colors that you fold over and keep in the middle. Remember to click on the pictures if you want to see them full size. Index I’ve spread the tutorials about casting on over several pages. Click on the links for each subject. The cast on basics: click here to goRead More →

In this tutorial I show you the ‘standard’ way of anchoring the warp threads. We will work with weft threads in 2 colors . I will also show how to vary with the threads, and how to use 3 threads. I have splitted the first tutorial into 2 parts. First I show the principle, so you get a clear idea on how this works, and after that I show you how to keep this into your hands, so you have controlRead More →

I made an extensive tutorial for Fiberworks. This is software to create weaving designs. I did this by making lots of videos, for which I give the contents here below with a short description of the subjects per video. I’m still working on it, because this software offers so many possibilities, that it takes a while to prepare and record it. So there is more to come!   The version I use in the video’s is Fiberworks PCW (for Windows), version 4.2, Bronze.  Video 1: Introduction creating a new design opening files with weaving designs and some explaining about dtx, wif and des link toRead More →

Hi! The 2nd vlog and blog I made on my vacation address. I was in a village or little town, Montesquieu-Volvestre, where we often did our shopping for groceries, and on one of these trips we walked around a bit, and we passed a store where they sold all kinds of household stuff. In the window I saw several crafting supplies, and there I saw this mini weaving loom from Clover. Well, as a person that loves weaving a lot, I couldn’t resist to buy it, it just had to be added to my collection 🙂 . The next day I unpacked it at theRead More →

For a while the last video in my pin loom weaving series! I will definitely be back with more, but I’m so into crochet and knitting at the moment, and making my own designs, that I want to do that first. Well, that’s what the Craftsteacher website and YouTube channel is all about: all kinds of crafts. I hope you enjoy a lot of different crafts too, it’s so fun to do something else now and then. At the moment I’m working on a lovely honeycomb shawl. And a crochet wrap with a simple wavy pattern. I made the video’s for them, and they areRead More →

Introduction This is a sequel on the 2 previous tutorials about how to do a crochet border around your weave. You can find the first one, where I used slip stitches, here, you can find the tutorial where I used single crochets here. I use the US terminology, for the UK it’s double crochet. Take a look at these tutorial first, because they give a much more detailed explanation with a lot more pictures and drawings. This tutorial is an extension, to show you how to do 4 stitches per corner. You have 2 flavors in that, that I will show both. 2 Or 4Read More →

Introduction This tutorial is about finishing the edges of your weave with a border by doing single crochets. I’m using the US-terms here, for the UK it is called a double crochet.

This is again an in depth tutorial, with lots of pictures and drawings. You can click on each picture or drawing to see a larger version.

What’s been happening Hi you all!!!! It maybe looks like there isn’t happening very much, but I’ve been working on some crochet and knitting projects, related to a yarn review. I had reasons to put part of it out on my Dutch channel with some priority, because I wanted to support my favorite yarn supplier (De Wolman). So that took some time that I couldn’t spend with you here. If you’re curious, you can go to my Dutch website (www.dehandwerkjuf.nl) or see the instructions for the crochet shawl I designed here. I didn’t translate it there yet, and it will be here on this websiteRead More →
