Weave a Diagonal
Weaving a diagonal shape isn't hard, in this lesson I'll show you how to weave a diagonal horizontally on your little loom.
Let's Dig Into Diagonals
For your first diagonal, it’s much easier if the two colors you use are the same kind of yarn. If one strand is thicker than the other, you’ll run into problems. Save that sort of creativity for later - after you've had a bit of practice.
Here’s a diagram to show you the weave structure.
Weave 2 rows of color A.
Weave one row to the right, but turn back on the second warp end in from the right.
Repeat, turning back on the third warp end in from the right.
Keep weaving this pattern, returning on the next warp thread in from the right.
Once you finish weaving color A’s diagonal, weave color B in on top of color A...
until color B reaches the left side.
You can keep weaving these diagonal shapes, or you can turn them into triangle patterns.
Now you’re ready to try weaving diagonals with more than two colors. Have fun experimenting with color combinations and triangles!
