How to Warp the Frame/Loom

by Emma Rhodes

Warping Frame/Loom 

                    
                     

Step 1:Thread the warp yarn all the way through the first bottom left hole and first top left hole leaving a tail that is about 5" long. 

                     
                    

Step 2:Take the tail and thread it through the second hole on the bottom left. 

                     
                     

Step 3:Tie the tail to the first warp string using a double overhand knot or knot of your choosing. 

Step 4: Thread the tail back through the first hole on the bottom left.

Step 5: Pull the knot down into the hole so that it is invisible. Leave the tail string long until you have finished weaving so that you can make any necessary adjustments. 

Step 6:Continue threading through the top and bottom cross beams all the way through the last hole on the bottom right. Make sure to keep the tension tight throughout.

Step 7: Thread the remaining warp yarn back through the second hole on the bottom right. 

Step 8: Secure the tension by tying the remaining warp to the last warp string using a double over hand knot or knot of your choosing. Make sure to use both hands to keep the tension. 

Step 9: Thread the remaining warp yarn back through the last hole on the bottom right. 

Step 10: Pull the knot down into the hole so that it is invisible. Leave the tail long until you have finished weaving so that you can make any necessary adjustments.
