Peglooms and Weaving Sticks

I remembered seeing a website with someone making a rag rug using
something called a peg loom. I thought it was like a knitting loom.
It turns out the peg loom is actually weaving, not knitting.

Finger Weaving is more like a knitting loom.

Montessoriworld.org - Scroll down the page for Finger Weaving
http://www.montessoriworld.org/Handwork/weave/weaving3.html

Here's what I found after the last couple of days of searching.

Peglooms
(search for "peg loom" "pegloom")

There are two kinds of peg looms. Most people are familiar with looms
that have pegs or pins to put your warp on. Like the little weavette looms,
or pot holder looms, or the student type frame looms with pegs.

The other kind of pegloom has movable pegs. You weave the warp around
pegs set on a frame, the lift the peg to slide the work down the warp.
This is a larger version of the even simpler Weaving Stick method.

WEAVING STICKS are about the simplest loom I've ever seen.

Do you mean like the Knifty Knitter looms? My lovely wife uses those all the time.

Those work more knitting or crochet. That is the string is looped with other string to make a knit fabric.

The peg looms and stick weaving actually have weft string woven around warp strings.

That would be the difference.

Have a good day!

No not those they have a mini straw loom that let's you make a small belt sized piece the same way as the big ones.  But if you use a straight knifty knitter you could do the same thing because the pegs are removeable

Found a link to it

I see what you mean. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

I have some weaving sticks I bought. I'll have to take a picture and post it.

Thanks for the clue!

Have a good day!
