Do you remember ‘pin looms’ from back in the day? Or maybe you have seen them in the many online videos, tutorials and groups?
It seems pin loom weaving is having another little resurgence, so I’m very excited to introduce my latest portable little pin-less looms. You can use these to weave small squares in the same way as pin looms – but with the big advantage is that there are no uncomfortable nails to handle.
A length of yarn is wound around the notches in a specific way and laid down in three layers. Then the fourth layer is woven over and under for a few rows to (almost magically) weave the fabric together.
There are two different size bamboo plywood looms so you can use up your yarn stash to weave small squares or tiny ones. Then join squares together to create a variety of projects such as coasters, scarves, blankets, bags, table mats, flowers etc.
The tiny frame makes squares that are approximately 1.5-2″ and the mini frame makes squares that are approximately 3″-3.5″ (depending on the type of yarn/fiber you use)
This small, portable weaving is fun and easy to learn – though it is a bit addictive 🙂
The instructional video tutorial is now up on you tube if you would like to see this little loom in action.
