so at my weaving class, they have these medium sized looms, that have these little levers, with the numbers 1234 on them, when you press a number(s) the strings (warped) rearrange, and the fasten the fabric or yarn.. then there's this mesh wire thing used to tighten (squish) together the yarn or fabric, and there's like a roll, so that you can make your item as long or shot as you like,

so i was wondering, does anyone have a simplified pattern of that?

or any loom for that matter, i already am currently making a frame loom so i want some others?

The looms that you are in reference to are called Jack looms or with the leavers on the top is called a table loom or a 4 shaft or Harness table loom. Look on ebay for a used one.
