Recently, I designed a fun shawl, and made a video about how to weave a shawl with a collar using 3 triangles woven on the 3ft triangle loom.
The border is made up of triangles woven on the potholder loom.
Here’s the video: The video is full of hints and tips for triangle loom weaving in ‘outside the box’ ways.
Here are 2 ways of weaving triangles on the potholder loom:
I used the first method for this shawl: How to weave a triangle on the potholder loom: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6ahC…
How to weave a triangle on the bias on the potholder loom:
I made a separate video about how to stitch the pieces of the shawl together:

I made a video tutorial showing how to weave on every other nail on the triangle loom when weaving with bulky yarns.
This creates an open lacy weave that drapes beautifully.
The shawl was woven on the 7 foot Dewberry Ridge Triangle loom,using super bulky yarn made by spinning together cotton threads with knitting machine and lace weight yarns.
The every other nail technique also works fine when 2 or 3 strands of medium or fine yarns are held together as if they are a single strand.
This is a very quick and easy way to weave a soft and drapey shawl.
The shawl in the video is a prayer (compassion) shawl made for a dear friend when she lost her Dad.
She loves the shawl, so I am pleased, because of course, I want her to feel that there is love in every stitch and that she can wrap herself in that love whenever she needs it.
Details: I spun a super bulky yarn by combining 7 strands of very fine crochet cotton and knitting machine boucle yarn- cotton and acrylic, on a bulky head spinner. The wpi is 5 wraps per inch. I plied it so it is 14 strands thick.
