Project #2

Stars and Strips by Amy Abbott

Thinking texture instead of structure is a good way to approach pattern weaving on the rigid-heddle loom. Since there are no shafts to create the weave patterns, you must rely on other tricks! Of course, interesting yarns and colors woven in simple plain weave can be wonderfully effective. But if texture is to be provided by something other than yarn, there are two possibilities: finger-manipulated techniques such as loops, rya knots, soumak, or simple wrapping—or pattern floats created with a pick-up stick. Learn the tricks of inlay weft patterning and weft pile with the free rigid-heddle loom patterns provided in this free eBook.

Project #3

Bands, Bands, Bands, and More Bands! By Christi Eales Ehler

Jaspe is the Guatemalan term for ikat. These inkle-woven bands take advantage of the unique design principles of Guatemalan jaspe fabrics as well as their rich and glorious rainbows of colors. Weave these versatile bands to create a sturdy belt or strap. Discover how great bands and belts can be for experimenting with color with this free project.

A Pincushion Necklace for You or Your Loom by Amy Abbott

A wide inkle-woven band is divided into two narrower bands to make handy hanging straps. The unique split straps and the tubular inkle-woven trim makes this project an interesting departure from traditional inkle bands. Wear the pincushion around your neck or hang it from the castle of your loom.
