I am wondering if you have any hints on how to change this to a 4 shaft loom. I do not use a rigid heddle but love this rug

I would love to make this rug on a 4 Shaft floor loom that is 24" wide. Any chance you might have a pattern in the coming weeks? Thank you, Lorie

Basketweave Rug Kit

The kit was only OK. The fiber was somewhat scratchy and unevenly dyed. I expected the colors to be more reddish versus the orangey-brown. The warp thread was quick to unply. The sequence of weaving was simple but sort of uninteresting. I was pleased with the final product but it was less than I expected.
