Hi folks!

I have'nt been weaving for ages, but a few weeks ago, a friend came up, asking me if I could make him a band to mend the sleeves of his favourite coat. I said yes and gave him some suggestions of different patterns.
This is what he wished to have:



it was my first time making a tendril. It is a variation of the ramshorn pattern

hmm.. I think I should personalise my loom a bit...

A very good site for ancient textile crafting, but it's in German...

Nope. It's actually a lace to mend the sleeves of a coat..
