Weaving on the triangle loom – a V shape cowl

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.

VERY cool!!!

It was a little challenging at first, especially since I wanted to weave a buttonhole in, as well.

But, it was worth the trouble!Ā  The ‘V’ weaving technique can be used on any size triangle loom.

The ā€™Vā€™ 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.Ā  That’s definitely a one time only for me. I’ll stick to cutting my buttons from wood from now on. šŸ˜›

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!

Happy weaving! šŸ˜€
