Loom too small

I’m working on adapting the chart to my 15 inch loom. Wish I had known that before ordering.

Love weaving towels

There is nothing better than giving someone a handwoven towel as a gift. These towels are an enjoyable weave and the results will not disappoint you although I prefer my towels to be hemmed. They're very absorbent and a great way to brighten up your kitchen.

Love the free patterns and tips for new weavers. I've been able to make the weekend rug kit - generous materials and I made 4 rugs with 2 kits. I have ordered cotton for dishtowels and several free patterns so I can get some practice. Warping longer than 2 yards seems difficult. Great tips on wet finishing, hemstitch. Good info on kits and patterns much appreciated by this beginner.
