Geometric Butterfly Motif to weave on the potholder loom

For the last couple of years, I have been working on a new design for the potholder loom.

It’s for a Geometric Butterfly motif- and I have finally finished the pattern for it, and for a bag and wrap made using it.

The Geometric Butterfly motif is wonderful for bags:

and wraps

It would also make beautiful prayer flags, pillows, afghans, vests, throws, wall hangings, table runners and whatever else your heart desires.

It’s a great way to showcase handspun yarns, but commercial yarns work just fine with it.

Tarn, or t shirt yarn is also great in the Geometric Butterfly pattern.

The pattern has full color step by step photos and diagrams, and comes with links to helpful videos.

There is a separate pdf that has all the step by step photos and instructions for how to weave all the different shapes on the potholder loom.

Isn’t it amazing what you can do on the simple potholder loom? 🙂

    I absolutely love the butterfly done on a potholder loom!!! Is it done in a single layer? Do the instructions show how to make the bags?

    Are the purse straps made with weaving sticks and an inkle loom? If so, are instructions included for these as well? Thank you. Love your work.



  4. Wow! How beautiful! The red butterfly on the black and white bag looks a bit like a bow tie on a suit.


    • Thanks, Aleksa 🙂 Actually, it’s hot pink, and after you said that, I went and looked at the photo…. it does, doesn’t it? In real life, the green embroidery and spool knitting shows up better, so it does look very butterfly like and not so bow tie-ish.

    hi Noreen, I can’t connect to your butterfly pattern link. Any suggestions?
