I bought one of these at a yarn sale for $1 but the lady who did them had passed away. Does anyone know how to use them? I've looked around online but can't find any instructions. A scanned copy would be awesome!

hexagon loom pattern  (I think the reason this one was out there, is they are having you build your own loom)  Seems the ones that actually have the original instructions are quite stingy with them. Wink

there were several people offering to e-mail the instructions on different boards.  Good luck, but I hope that site helped in the meantime.

I remember using these looms!  My family used them to make placemats and trivets.

Okay just wanted to let everyone know that I found someone who was gracious enough to email me some scanned copies of the instructions. If anyone ever wants them, just let me know. I would be glad to email them to you.  Grin

I would apprecitate the instructions if you could send me them.  I have the square one and know how to use it, but I have no clue how to use the hex one.  Thanks so much...medichmm@wmconnect.com

I believe that Annies Attic just put out a book on using square looms.. they are trying to make a comeback.  I have the loom unfortunately I don't have time to scan out the instructions for you as I am going on vacation early tomorrow and I still haven't packed yet!  Send me a message to remind me and I will get the instructions for you in a week and a half if you hadn't gotten them already that is!

Hi,

If you don't mind, could you please email me a copy too.  When mom passed away, I got her looms, but have no idea how to do them. 

Thank you,

Good deal. I just came back from vacation late last night and totally forgot about the lap loom instru ctions... glad you were able to get ahold of them.  There is a bit of info online for them - and Annies Attic seems to be trying to bring the butterfly loom back - which is just a paper version of the plastic ones if you ask me...

Glad you got what you needed!

I have just bought a set of Butterfly Looms from Annies Attic.  They are NOT paper, they are wooden, and fantastic.  I've never made so many things in such a short time.

I would love to have the files relating to this...
I bought 2 of these looms at a yard sale, still had the yarn wrapped on the pegs, but no instructions..

If you are still willing to send the instructions...please send to

I'm new to this group so I hope I'm doing this right.  Huh is I have a square lap loom and a hexagon lap loom with the directions. The problem is...the picture showed a very pretty afghan, it just doesn't tell how to put it together. I have just taught myself to crochet so...the easier the better. Thanks in advance.

Hello,  I am also in need of the instructions for the hexagon loom. My granddaughter discovered one in my attic (I have no idea where in the heck it came from) she believes  she would like to make Christmas presents with it.  Please, let me know if anyone can help me,  Thanks!

I have actually sold all the lap loom things that I had and do not have instructions for them anymore.
I did a search online and found this discussion board about the looms.  There are people willing to send the instructions on how to use them.
http://www.wwvisions.com/craftbb/askbb/19247.html
I'm sorry that I could not help directly but hopefully that link will help.  There are a lot of posts but the first one I opened up just happened to be someone offering to send instructions.  You will just have to read through and see if anyone can help.
sorry.

Wow...I had no idea so many people had these looms without instructions!!
I too have one that has a half woven yarn rug type thing on it that I gave up on because I know it's been done incorrectly.
Proper instructions would be great...I'll keep looking!

well. I would look at that link I posted next.
The instructions are out there - people do have them.  I must have sold about 20 different booklets with projects in them. They were a little too grandma for my style which is why I sold them but I'm sure someone can turn that around.

Take the time, go through that link or just do a google search for hexagon lap loom projects or hexagon lap loom instructions or hexagon lap loom tutorial.
If you search for just lap loom stuff you will end up with the round looms.

I think it's so ironic to see your post. I was just talking with my mom who was cleaning out the basement today and found her old looms, but no instructions. I told her to look online and she laughed at me (she fears the computer!). Anyway, we searched together and found instructions at www.lapweaving.info. We also came across this thread, so I had to share our finding! Good luck!

I was looking at a bunch of hexagon looms today on Ebay and I was wondering what could be made with them and how. I'm looking for my first loom, and I think I am just going to go with a simple frame loom but those hexagon ones look interesting.

I just found one hex loom in a box in my craft room... I'll have to measure it and see if anyone wants to trade for it.  There's only the one size.  I had sold a slew of them on ebay about a year ago - a huge set of them. They were adjustable where you built the size you wanted.  It was pretty cool... but I did find one lonely hex loom in a box on the floor.  I also found one of those knifty knitters too - I don't use them since I have a knitting machine.  I probably picked it up with the intention of sending it in a swap.

There's a Yahoo! group devoted to hexagonal and "placemat" looms: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LoveAndMoneyLooms/  One of the members is making these looms for sale if anyone wants a set.

They have instruction booklets, pattern booklets, and even a tutorial on how to use these looms like the round knitting looms!  You do have to join the group though.  It's not a chatty group, but they do have very useful files.
