Weaving on a Little Loom: Techniques, Patterns and Projects for Beginners
Author: Fiona Daly
Weaving on a Little Loom teaches readers everything they need to know to start small-frame loom weaving, an easy and inexpensive craft that can be done at home. From setting up the loom to finishing a project, this book covers both basic and more advanced techniques, with an introduction to creating patterns such as basket and bird's eye weaves, rib, twill, and herringbone. With clear instruction and beautiful illustrative photographs, step-by-step tutorials guide you through designing and creating five contemporary woven projects - including table placemats, wall hangings, and a tote bag - all made with natural, environmentally friendly materials.
