how to weave Log Cabin

how to re-warp your loom on the fly 

Materials needed: 

10-inch or 15-inch Cricket Loom with an 8-dent reed

two stick shuttles

two skeins of cotton yarn like Cestari cotton or cotton-flax in contrasting colors (i.e. white/red, or yellow/dark grey)

Homework:

Before class warp your loom for Houndstooth Check. Prepare a warp of 68 ends, 3 yards long using the two contrasting yarns as follows:

4 ends color A

2 ends color B

2 ends color A

Repeat alternating 2 ends of colors B and A until you have 64 ends warped,

then finish with

4 ends color B, for a total of 68 ends.

Wind the warp onto the back beam, finish warping the loom through the heddle, and tie the warp onto the front ready to start weaving. Bring the remaining warp yarns to class as we will use them to weave both projects.. Please look at the images posted with this class listing to check your warp.  If you have any questions any all, please contact me at 434 295 5057, or at akorotkystudio@gmail.com.
