Soumak Pouch Weave Along- Part 5- Black and white checkerboard motifs

Part 5 of the Soumak Pouch Weave Along is a step by step series of photos that I took while we were on holidays at the end of August.

I adapted the pattern to have checkerboard borders and  wove  the Soumak pouch on my Mirrix Mini (5 inches wide… perfect traveling loom).

Here’s how the pattern looks with the black and white checked borders:

If I had wanted to make the pouch wider, I could have added ‘s’ hooks to the side and just added the checked squares to the pattern.

Adding 2 more ‘s’ hooks at the top and bottom on both sides would have added one inch (2.5 cm) to the width of the pouch.

I wanted the squares to be symmetrical off a central square, so I had to do some fancy footwork with working out the size of the squares.

Here’s what I decided: Here’s the graph for the lower border of the pouch:

Each square represents one strand of warp:

The embroidery is worked with Kreinik threads.

There is an amethyst bead on the center of the back of the pouch.

Happy Weaving!🙂
