I love weaving Teneriffe Lace on the Hexagon Loom:
Here’s a how to video that focuses on techniques that I use for basic openwork Teneriffe lace on the 4 inch Hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge Looms.
Openwork Teneriffe is quite easy to do and moves along quickly, once you have the hang of it.
I am using Kreinik Metallic thread in the video to add more lustre and sparkle to the finished piece.
Definitely work a few motifs with thread or yarn before adding in the metallic yarn as it’s tricky to work with.
Here’s a vintage booklet from the archives of the University of Arizona:

Techniques covered in this video:
1- Tips for working with Metallic threads.
2- How to warp the hexagon loom for circular weaving
3- How to work openwork Teneriffe lace on the hexagon loom. (I use a 4 inch loom in the video, but larger sizes work just fine for the openwork technique).
The next tutorial will show more advanced weaving techniques for Teneriffe lace on the 6 inch hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge looms.
Happy weaving and happy lace making!
