Video tutorial for weaving with loops on the potholder loom

I have been working on new designs for projects that are woven with loops on the potholder loom.

I used to dismiss them totally, but now that I have worked with  high quality cotton loops, (these ones are from Harrisville Designs: Link)

I have changed my mind.

Loops have some really positive things going for them: They make a VERY sturdy fabric, which is just perfect for some projects, and they are just great for color work.

But, I really don’t recommend them as the way to teach a child or beginning weaver. I feel that starting people off with yarn is much easier. There are some challenges inherent in working with loops, and that’s why I’ve made this video.

Happy Weaving! 😀
