How to weave a tiny square on the Zoom Loom

There is an ongoing Weave Along on the Zoom Loom group on Ravelry.

Here’s the link:

I love weaving dolls, so I was hooked on the idea of weaving one doll for each of the seasons, using the Zoom Loom from Schacht.

I sketched my thoughts about the ‘Winter’ doll, and always in all the sketches- pockets showed up.

It was essential that my Zoomie doll have pockets. After all… Winter= Cold= Gotta have pockets!

So, I had to figure out a way of weaving tiny squares on the Zoom Loom (it’s the Zoom Loom weave along, so no cheating by crocheting or knitting the pockets).

I figured out a nifty way of weaving wee little squares on the Zoom Loom and have made this video showing how to do it.


I think that the 4 seasons Zoom Loom Doll Weave Along is going to be great fun.

By the way- I love the little Zoom loom and I don’t profit by singing it’s praises.

The weave along is going to continue all through out 2014, so do join in.

I am just a member of the Ravelry group, and not a moderator or anything, so if you have questions, join the group, and hop right in.

I’ll be posting more tutorials as I make them,  showing the unusual ways that I am using the Zoom Loom.

Happy Weaving!

    Hi Noreen. I have enjoyed reading your blog & watched many of your tutorials. You are very, very talented & generous by sharing these ideas & instructions to people like me. I just want to say that although I am not hard of hearing, I struggle to hear your voice on the videos. If there is any way you can turn up the volume, it would be great. Again, thank you ever so much, for all you do! Cheryl

    Noreen, i believe I saw the same comment on 1 of ur videos a while back. I have IPad 2 & all other videos are loud & clear. It sure won’t stop me from watching each & every vid you offer. Since I now follow you, I look forward to emails telling me a new blog or tutorial is out. Cheryl

    • Yes, and I find it incredibly frustrating. There is a reason why one of the videos has muffled sound, but I don’t understand why this is happening on others. When I hit the play button, they are coming through loud and clear. Arghhhhhhhhh!
