Not too long ago we were talking about weaving. I tried then put it away, I have a knitters loom from Ashford and it is really simple to use. I have taught myself to weave plain scarves and actually sold some. I also have a 4 shaft Schacht table loom and it's not so simple to use and as you can see below I am trying again. Karen inspired me to go back to it, the plan is Karen is purchasing a 28" Ridged Heddle Loom (similar to the knitters loom) and we will be making place mats. Now I couldn't wait and tried it.
At the same time I had to complete a last minute Christmas gift so needless to say the gift was a little late but just the same the recipient was thrilled to receive it. Loved knitting this stitch its only a 2 row repeat and the wrong side is purl across so basically its one row to worry about.
|Cast on a multiple of 10 plus 1 (I did 41 size 10 needle on a sport weight yarn)|
Row 2: WS, Purl
That's it, just repeat those 2 rows till your desired length! I did 3 balls with a fringe about 6 in.
It's a loose knit, remember the looser the work the more drape it will have.
At the same time weaving in the day time, in the evening I'm knitting a cardigan with Lotus Mimi (the Mink) yarn, double strand and a size 9 needle. This one will be interesting the pattern is developing as I go so we shall see how it will turn out! Pictures will come soon.
