Leno-lovely Weaving Pattern The Bounty Weaving Pattern Silky Houndstooth Weaving Pattern
Each scarf uses 1 skein and makes a six foot long, 6 inch wide scarf (depending on your draw in) or consider making a 60 inch cowl (join the ends) and embellish the edges with a little crochet. To get these measurements you will need to use a 10 dent heddle or reed. You may use a smaller or larger reed/heddle but your sizes, drape, and overall look may be different than the sample provided here. You will also need a pick up stick. This pattern is easy to do and you have two variations to choose from. You can make a light weight open weave scarf or a couple of towels/napkins for your kitchen. Both are easy and play on color to spice up the look.
This is one of those fabulous patterns that may look hard to those that are not in the know but is really quite simple. With just simple color changes, you'll be able to make this scarf.

Plaid Weaving Pattern
Our Price: $6.00
This is another simple weave that with a little time over a sink felting, you have an exquisite scarf. Its also actually pretty warm. I've been wearing mine the past few weeks. This pattern is simple. The colors blend a little so it comes out more as a Tartan than a real checkerboard, which is basically how it's woven. It's a simple 10 by 10 checkerboard cowl. This pattern is straightforward though it may take a little concentration to remember what patterning row you're on. On mine, I chose not to be conscientious about the patterning and have varied plaid patterning in my weft though it's not very apparent.
Chubby Checker Weaving Pattern Linen Leno Weaving Pattern Just Stripes Weaving Pattern
Do you like a big scarf? Do you love fat cowls? The yarn called for in this pattern is enough for one long scarf or a chubby cowl. Such a rewarding piece of fabric! We're calling for a lot of leno. This is an all over lace patterning to create a lovely scarf or cafe curtains.
This is a fairly straight forward weave with an unusual set up. Follow
the directions carefully to set it up to create a scarf or cowl with horizontal or vertical stripes.
Table Lace Weaving Pattern Katrinkles Ornaments to Weave Schacht Reed Rigid Heddle Sections for the Variable Dent Reeds -  choose your size
This pattern is just a little bit above beginner level. It's not complicated but it does use a pick up stick to create a lace scarf, cowl, or table runner.
Birch cutout in cute ornament shapes just waiting for your special yarn to weave through and make a beautiful ornament. Certainly perfect for the holidays but I can see this with bright summer yarns to display year round.

Schacht Weaving Cards
Our Price: $7.00
Use them alone or on a loom.

Card weaving (also known as tablet weaving) is a way to create patterned woven bands that are thick, sturdy and beautiful. Though cards are often regarded as a simple tool, the weavings they can produce are infinite in design and complexity. The portability of these cards gives you the possibility of carrying a four harness loom in your pocket.

You can use the cards on their own with a simple tensioning device, such as tying the yarn to a door knob and tensioning around your waist. Or use the cards on a loom. An Inkle Loom is an ideal companion, but you can also use them on a Cricket, Flip, table, or floor loom.

Schacht has developed a card that, at 3.5 inches square, is comfortable in the hand without being bulky. Colored bands and stripes are printed along each edge as an aid in keeping track of the card’s position. Made of sturdy yet flexible 24-point card stock, these cards will serve you well over many, many warps.

The cards come in packages of 25, more than enough for a range of projects. All you need to add is yarn and a belt shuttle. You can start weaving complex bands at less than the cost of two coffees!

Sample project instructions from Schacht

Stick shuttles made by Schacht - The simplest and most versatile of all shuttles. They are available in 9", 10", 12", 16", 20", 24" and 30" lengths. We recommend you choose a stick shuttle slightly longer than the width of your warp. Over the years, there are have been some design changes to the Trestle Stand.  If you have a Flip loom (or a non folding old style Rigid Heddle from Schacht) that is older than 2-17-10 you will need this kit to make all the parts of the trestle stand work. This is a kit to drill out the arms so that they will fit your loom.

In stock ships from Maine. If we should run we can backorder and drop ship from the factory. Their lead time is 2-4 weeks.

Belt shuttle. Typically used in Card and Inkle Weaving. This collection of Linda Collier Ligon's essays in Handwoven magazine traces the ups and downs, joys and trials, and people and events of the weaving world over the last 25 years. In these essays textiles are the window to the world, and questions such as What does it mean to have a loom-shaped life? What's warp, what's weft? and What are the interlacements? are explored with precise, probing insight that is always engaging.

Our 14/2 EuroflaxLinen is our high quality long line linen, available in vibrant colors. Navajo Weaving Way is a compilation of Noël Bennett's earlier books on Navajo rug-weaving traditions, Working with the Wool and Designing with the Wool, both now out of print. This book augments the information in Bennett's out-of-print works with all-new chapters on spinning, carding and dyeing techniques. Illustrations include photographs by John Running of native women carding, spinning, and weaving, along with line drawings depicting specific techniques. One look at these gorgeous projects and your fingers will beg to learn a new craft! The beautiful, textural objects in the Time to Weave eBook and print book—now in a convenient bundle— include plaited paper baskets, woven lanterns, hearth rugs, sachets, cork table mats, and more offer an approachable and inspirational way to learn the fundamentals of non-loom weaving for the first time.

Drawing on ancient and traditional techniques, author Jane Patrick, past editor of Handwoven magazine, uses everyday materials like copper tape, plastic sheeting, shrink tubing, paper yarn, and granite tiles to create stunning contemporary objects for the home. Patrick focuses on embracing a sense of place and appreciation for the natural world in these 18 simple weaving projects, and encourages a choice of reconstructed, recycled, vintage, or natural materials.

Non-loom techniques in Time to Weave include braiding, stringing, knotting, frame loom weaving, straw weaving, weaving over a pillow form, and more. Projects range from a sticks-and-string coaster, canvas strip pillow, pocket purse, woven paper cards, "waves" window hanging, and more. Clear step-by-step instructions and photography are provided for each design, and each project features ideas and variations for further exploration.

Projects call for simple equipment and tools and materials that are easily available. Each project is introduced with a quote and short essay about the process of making the piece, the materials, or sometimes musings about the process of creation and how this fits in with daily living. Patrick encourages readers to weave with a purpose and enjoy the process of creation as much as the outcome. Also included are hints, resources, and suggestions for further reading.
