Linda, a weaver from Florida made this little Hugs and Kisses blanket on the Quilt Weaver square loom. She says the baby weight yarn was a bit fine so she carried the "Sweet Stripes" with a strand of regular sport weight in white, since both the purple and green yarns had white in them.
I am sending along my first effort with the looms. I used the 7" diamonds and 14" triangles to complete. The wool used was Blue Leicester in 3 natural shades.
I have also included the piece before I put the final dark triangles and before it was fulled. I was intrigued to see that the piece naturally went into a circular shape. I am thinking about doing a piece that is similarly done except with an extra round or two of diamonds and then leaving part of the center open for a poncho.
What great fun! I wanted to pass this along to you. The looms are a joy to use.
Here are two samples of the blankets you can make with these looms. Both designs can be made with the large or small looms. There are many more way of putting these shapes together into attractive blankets, ponchos, stoles, scarves and much more. You will use them for clothing as well as projects to decorate your home.
This bedspread was made by Marlys of Florida. She calls it the Hovering Hawks Blanket, made with the 12" tri and square looms.
The looms can be used for many things, depending on your point of view. Dumbledore thinks this Quilt Weaver is just fine for a quick nap.
