We’ve talked about weaving a bit on the Berroco blog—it’s a great way to take a break from knitting and crocheting while still being able to play with yarn! Woven fabrics can be used in a variety of projects, and weaving patterns yield endless inspiration. But if you’re just thinking about dipping your toes in the weaving waters, we have a great opportunity for you to win an Intro to Weaving kit.
Small looms, such as the pin loom or rigid heddle looms, are the perfect introduction to weaving. They’re typically low-cost and there’s a lot of pattern support and inspiration available for them. One such source is Interweave’s special weaving issue, Easy Weaving with Little Looms. Both this year’s edition and last year’s offer tips and tricks to get you started weaving with small looms, along with patterns for weaving projects to make with those small looms. One such project is Angela Tong’s Pin-Loom Clutch, worked on a Schacht Zoom Loom with two colors of Berroco Cotolana™.
We’ll have a blog post from Angela later this week, providing more information about her cute little clutch purse.
The Schacht Zoom Loom is a great way to learn the ins and outs (pun somewhat intended) about weaving. This pin loom is a complete package—you get the loom in a convenient carrying case, the weaving needle, and even a little bit of yarn to get you started before moving on to bigger and better projects, like those you would find in Easy Weaving with Little Looms.
Thanks to our friends at Schacht and Interweave, we’re giving a way a weaving starter kit! One winner will receive a print copy of Easy Weaving with Little Looms, a Schact Zoom Loom package, enough Berroco Cotolana to make the Pin-Loom Clutch (you choose the colors), all in a Berroco project bag! Want to win? It’s easy! Giveaway is now closed.
• Winner will be chosen at random on Friday, May 5 and notified via email
