Hi everyone,

I just bought a table loom and tried it out today. Everyone has such neat edges (selvedges?). Just wondering if there's a trick to it.

3  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / rigid heddle loom-building one on: December 12, 2007 02:54:30 PM
Hey guys, I'm venturing over here from the knitting board.

Like so many of you, I've been doing a TON of research on looms and I'm just totally lost. As of now, I'm only interested in making scarves and wide wraps. Maybe 20" wide at the most. But I would like the capability of making them 6 feet long. From what I gather, that's not possible on a frame loom unless I make it 6 feet long. I've been looking at rigid heddle looms and those cool folding ones. The price isn't too bad, but is there any way of building one? I just can't grasp how that little short thing can store a long scarf. My only guess is that the scarf would be rolled up at the end, but then where does the extra warp come from? Or is there an alternative that can be easily handbuilt?

Any help or suggestions would be really appreciated.

okay, i'm knitting a really simple sweater. the only frills are going to be vertical panels of cabling going up each arm. the panels will be in a different color. is it possible to do this in the round without cutting my yarn at each row?

ok, i started mine the other day. i've gotten a little bit past the first increase (the narrow part above the hips). i'm using the recommended yarn in the same color--sweet brier rose. i love this yarn. it's so soft and the color is so textured and captivating. i highly recommend it. it's definately worth the price.

the yarn is araucania atacama in case anyone wants to know. i have some in the same colorway...it's not working for me either, but i really love what you did with it.

yeah, i agree. ive been studying the bigger picture on the website and it really looks like it was done flat. ive tried a few things and none look like the pictures. especially the unfolded side, which is my favorite part. im gonna keep looking.

i already ordered the yarn and pattern for this. it should be here any day now and i'll be starting it right away. i'm so pleasantly surprised to see a KAL for this. i thought i was all alone.

i dont want to make this hat so i dont want to buy the pattern, but i love the double-sidedness of the ribbing. anyone have ideas on how it was done? it almost looks like it was done sideways.
