Pattern Plan

Source: Martha Stewart Living, February 2006


The appearance of your woven swatch will vary depending on how many yarns are used to thread and weave the loom, their thickness, and, in some cases, the order in which the colors are used. Use one yarn to thread and weave the loom for a solid colored swatch.To create a fabric with a tweedlike appearance, use two different colored yarns simultaneously to thread and weave the loom. A checked pattern results from threading the loom with yarn of one color, then weaving with a different yarn; the base color -- the color used first -- will be the predominant color of the swatch.
