How to weave a vest on the Triangle loom- Part 2

In my previous post, LINK, I showed how to set up the loom, warp and start the weaving.

I posted the list of materials and equipment that you need to weave a bias vest on the 7 foot triangle loom.

In this video, I show how to finish the weaving, including:

Prayer Shawl Woven on the Triangle Loom

My dearest friend is going through some health issues, and so I have woven her a prayer shawl.

I wove it on my Dewberry Ridge triangle loom:

I like to work with the loom pointed up- it feels most stable that way on the easel, and I like having the widest edge being the foundation of the weaving.

I use a shed stick to do the weaving and then scoop the weft yarn through with a crochet hook.

I brought in sunflower leaves and large tree leaves, then made rubbings of them on paper with crayon.

I cut them out and pinned them to the triangle:

Then I used the Tambour technique (see LINK for video tutorial) to work the leaves onto the triangle.

I wove dragonflies on my Dragonfly Loom (LINK) and stitched them on, as she loves dragonflies.

Dragonflies are such a powerful symbol of renewal that they are perfect on a prayer shawl.

I used the 4 foot configuration, and wove and embellished 2 triangles.

I did the tambour crochet and appliqueing of the dragonflies while each triangle was still on the loom.

Then, I stitched the 2 triangles together, leaving a few inches open at the back of the neck to form a collar:

The leaves are handspun wool spun by my daughter-in-love, Alliston Findlay.

I used a combination of weaving threads, including cotton boucle and merino, to create a light and airy shawl that she’ll be able to wrap around her shoulders and have with her on her healing journey.

A gift of love-A heart and hands scarf

I wanted to wrap my daughter with love, so I decided to weave her a stole or scarf that has the hand prints of our near and dear.

And in the hand prints, are little hearts that I wove on my heart loom. LINK for how to weave them.

I wove the triangles on the 14 inch triangle loom from Dewberry Ridge looms LINK

And showed how to do the chain stitch drawings: LINK

And, how to weave the flower from hearts: LINK

Because the scarf/stole/shawl will be seen from both sides, I stitched a heart to each side of the stole :o)

I plan on crocheting an edge around it eventually, but am holding off on that until we are sure that we don’t want more triangles added to it.

I love being able to pour my love into a special gift- with love in every stitch! 😀

In every stitch is a wish for happiness!

4 panel blanket woven on the triangle loom

I love geometry, and am intrigued by sacred geometry. I think that’s why I like working with looms that are different geometric shapes.

Last autumn, my nephew and his bride asked me to weave them a blanket as a wedding present.

Hmm- there were so many options on how to weave the blanket.

I settled on using my triangle loom that had recently arrived from Dewberry Ridge looms.  Link

I set it up to the 5 foot configuration and started weaving:

I decided that 4 triangles on the 5 foot configuration of the loom, stitched together with the hypotenuse of the triangles forming the outside edge of the blanket, would work best.

I wanted to try giving it a bit more texture and interest than just plain weave, so I went with Over 2/Under 2, and loved it.

The yarn is gorgeous Kertzer wool that has been discontinued. It took 12 balls of

Kertzer Rejuvenation, 100% wool, 100 gm/3.5 oz, 200 m/220 yds, color # 8006 to make the blanket.

I used  2 strands of yarn held together to weave the triangles for the blanket.

To stitch the 4 triangles together, I laid them on the dining room table and stitched 2 triangles together (remembering to have the hypotenuse on the outside, and not stitched), then stitched the other 2 triangles together.

Then, I stitched the long center seam together.

I used the ‘V’ or ‘Baseball’ stitch to do the stitching.

This video shows how to do it:

After I stitched the 4 triangles together,  I spool knitted about 21 feet of spool knitted cord for the outside edges.

I stitched it onto the blanket edges….

Here’s a video that shows how to do that:

I thought that loops at the corner would be pretty, so I added them

It was a crazy amount of work to make the blanket.

The weaving took 12 or 13 days of full days at the loom, and  the spool knitting, fulling, stitching etc added several more days.

So, this is NOT a quick and easy project.

I hope that my nephew and his bride like it, and if they don’t, I gave them my permission to give it away, so that someone else can enjoy it.

No point in having it fill up a cupboard and not be used, so hopefully, it is keeping someone warm and cozy!
