Enjoy a loom that is inexpensive, compact and cute without sacrificing function. This is a loom for new and experienced weavers. Whether you are learning to weave for the first time, want to learn new techniques or sample your wonderful yarns, this loom is fun and easy to use. Anybody can weave on this wonderful little loom!

The 20cm (8in) weaving width allows you to sample all your favorite rigid heddle patterns, textures and colors. So compact, it is only 1.1 kg (2.5lbs). The loom is made from beautiful solid natural Silver Beech timber and has strong handles, ratchets and clicker pawls so your warp never unwinds unintentionally.

 EP12138 Striped Napkins with Pick-up
Digital Pattern designed by Susan E. Horton

Challenge yourself and explore plain weave with a pick-up technique in this digital pattern. Unlike doubleweave pick-up on a shaft loom, pick-up on the rigid-heddle loom is restricted to the slot threads. Never worked with a pick-up technique before? The Weaver's idea book is a terrific resource to help inspire design and guide you to stunning, striped woven towels.

Setts: EPI: 12 (1 doubled end/dent in a 12-dent rigid heddle). PPI: 11.
Width in the Reed: 215⁄12".
 EP12137 Zigzag Scarf
Digital Pattern designed by Deborah Jarchow

Many of us follow daily schedules that leave very little time for weaving, so we look for quick projects like the Zigzag Scarf. Whenever you have a moment, you can spend it joyfully at your loom- no thinking or planning, only the rhythm of weaving, the feel of the weft, watching the growing pattern.

Finished Size: 1 scarf 5" × 60" plus 5" fringe at each end.
Warp Ends: 44.
Warp Length: 2. yd (81") long (allows 5" for take-up, 14" for loom waste; loom waste includes fringe). If a larger loom is used, increase warp length to 2. yd, which allows 5" for take-up and 23" for loom waste.
Setts: EPI: 8 PPI: 12
Width in the Reed: 5."
 EP12136 Petal Pink, Petal Soft
Digital Pattern designed by Jane Patrick

Spanish lace is made by weaving plain weave with only a small group of warp threads for 3 or more picks and then moving to an adjacent group of warp threads and weaving 3 or more picks and continuing this way across the warp to the opposite selvedge. Many different and lovely effects are possible with Spanish lace to create this exquisite shawl.

Finished Size: 17" × 671⁄2" plus 6" fringe each end.

Warp Length: 3 yd long (allows 4" for take-up, 29" for loom waste; loom waste includes fringe).

 EP12135 Little-Sew Lacy Vest
Digital Pattern designed by Judith Shangold

Always looking for ideas for garments that don’t require too much construction that drape well and flatter most figures? This is the perfect pattern for you! It is basically a shawl that, with a little folding and stitching and a clever little neckband, wears like a vest. The style is just about a one-size-fits-all, and you can invent your own interesting closures at the front.

Finished Size: 16" × 72".
Warp Ends: 224.
Warp Length: 100" long (rigid-heddle loom) or 3 yd long (shaft loom); allows 4" take-up, 22" loom waste (rigidheddle) or 30" (shaft loom).

 W10W01 Best of Handwoven: New Technique Series: Rigid Heddle Pattern Book 1
PDF

Rigid Heddle Pattern Book #1 is not only a book of projects, but it's a how-to for creating pattern beyond plain weave on the rigid heddle. Compiled completely of articles by rigid-heddle pioneer Betty Linn Davenport, this e-book teaches you how to create ten different leno designs, borders with warp-float stripes, eyelash-pile fabrics, Bronson lace, petit-point with a supplementary weft, and other amazing techniques that look like they could only be woven on a shaft loom. You'll learn how to use multiple pick-up sticks, two rigid heddles, and more.
 EP7364 Best of Handwoven: New Technique Series: Rigid Heddle Pattern Book 2
PDF

With the Rigid Heddle Pattern Book 2, you’ll learn how to thread two heddles so that you can use fine threads at close setts, opening your weaving life to the beautiful fine cottons, silks, and linens that shaft-loom weavers love so well. You’ll also learn pick-up techniques for weaving patterns in both spot Bronson and Atwater-Bronson lace. Once you understand how pick-up works, you’ll be able to design and weave lace patterns that are far beyond the capacity of a shaft loom (unless shaft-loom weavers use a much more complicated pick-up technique than yours). The shaft loom does not have slot threads, and slots are the source of rigid-heddle pattern magic.
