It’s been a crazy busy time in my studio, with lots and lots of deadlines to meet.
But… in between it all, I have been having a lovely time with the triangle loom.
Mine’s from Dewberry Ridge Looms [link] It’s a thing of beauty- so well made!
I’ve been experimenting with the loom to figure out some different ways of using it.
I have come up with a way of using the tri loom to weave ‘V’ shapes.
It was a little challenging at first, especially since I wanted to weave a buttonhole in, as well.
But, it was worth the trouble! The ‘V’ weaving technique can be used on any size triangle loom.
The ’V’ shape gives the cowl flexibility and drape, so it fits beautifully.
My lovely daughter in law, who is a FABULOUS spinner, spun the yarn for these three cowls.
I made the buttons from coconut shells.
Oh, my word! I did NOT enjoy cutting them out- the round shape of the coconut shell makes for a hair raising experience when sawing. That’s definitely a one time only for me. I’ll stick to cutting my buttons from wood from now on.
You can order the pattern, which includes the instructions on how to weave the ‘V’ shape on the Triangle loom, and how to weave a buttonhole, too, on my website:
Now that we are sliding into winter, weaving coziness is a very good idea!
