Do you make up your own weaving patterns? Would you do something like that on a smaller, test type loom?

The pattern on this scarf was simply because or the color runs in the yarn.  It was a simple over under weave.  I honestly don't know *a lot* about weaving, having only ever woven on a simple 2 shaft, or a home made loom made like this.  I mostly just wing it, learning from my mistakes as I go along.  Cheesy  It's the way I learn best.

I love this! As I was reading it, I had the thought to do this project with an after-school group of kids. Then I realized how large the boards were and that I'd have to store them somewhere... never mind get the boards. I'll have to see if I can get some donated. Maybe I can have several boards going that the kids work on together and then we can sell or raffle the scarves off at our big Winter Carnival.

That's a good idea, CraftADDchick!  The boards don't have to be this big, and scarves don't necessarily have to be the only thing made.  you could make placemats, hot pads, pillow fronts... etc.  You just have to remember that when you are weaving this way, you loose a little bit of width, and you have to be careful to not pull your weft (the yarn you weave with) to tight.  A decent size of loom could be made on a 24x24 pice of wood too.

I'll definitely be giving it a lot more thought! Using smaller boards has potential, but I'll have to investigate the storage space issue before I make a final decision. I work in a very large building, so there must be someplace I can store things for the project. Last year, I just realized that there is a big area off of the cafeteria that the custodians use. I may be able to beg a small area to store the boards (and the bin of yarn) in. And, if they're in the cafeteria, we'd have plenty of space to work in!

Thanks for the tutorial! I really want to try using a loom, but I can't justify buying a loom. Thanks!

You're welcome Cassettetape!   I hope you give it a try,  it's quite fun.  And woven fabrics are just so pretty.
