Potholder looms can make so much more than potholders!
You can weave on these popular looms using the traditional loops or with nearly any yarn to make a variety of patterns, including Plain Weave, Twill, and Checkerboard. You can also weave shapes other than squares, such as rectangles and triangles. This variety of options means you can weave just the modules you need to make projects from wall hangings to place mats, runners, baskets, and more. Noreen teaches and explains each step of the techniques and projects in full detail, with photos, so even if you have never woven before, you'll easily be able to accomplish any project in this book.
Tapestry weaving is also fun on the potholder loom, and Noreen shows you how with detailed instructions for setting up your loom and working tapestry techniques. Start with the Tapestry Sampler and then try your hand at personalized wall dolls, colorful wall hangings, and decorative art pieces. All you need to know for successful weaving on your potholder loom is in this comprehensive book!

30+ projects for wall hangings, place mats, baskets, and more

Potholder Loom Weaving

Be pleasantly surprised if you believe loom weaving with potholders is limited to creating looper potholders.

Potholder Loom Weaving takes you into a fun world of weaving. If you enjoy completing small projects, this weaving method is for you. In her book Potholder Loom Weaving, Noreen Crone-Findlay shows you how to do several types of weaves, including tapestry. There are many projects and ideas in this fun-filled book. All projects have step-by-step photos and detailed instructions.

I’m Addicted!

Learn to weave with either loopers or yarn. But my preference is YARN. My stash of yarn has never looked more appealing. I never thought of using yarn on a potholder loom until I watched Noreen on YouTube.

I have woven various squares using different weaving techniques and sizes. Below are two examples of my woven squares: plain and diagonal/bias. The diagonal weaving creates a lighter square with an increased drape and a larger size. The pictures showcase these squares woven on an 18-peg plastic potholder loom.

I’m crafting the Comfort Thumb-Hugging bear, a creation borne out of empathy for those in distress. It is a variant of the popular Crochet Bear, which garnered attention on the Craft Yarn Council of America’s front page for over a year. Unlike its predecessor, this bear is woven and features arms that can lovingly embrace one’s thumb or finger. At the moment, I am in the process of making the squares and require black embroidery floss and stuffing.

I urge you to buy the paperback or e-book and watch her YouTube videos. The patterns she shows on YouTube are in her book. So, you do need both.
