Learn to Weave Dots on a Little Loom

Weaving Dots

Dots are created a lot like checkers, but with checkers you weave the same amount of each color. With dots you have a background color and a dot color.

Let's Get Started Weaving Dots

In this project color A (yellow) is the background and color B (blue) makes the dots.

Weave several rows of color A, then weave 1 row of color B.

When you weave the next row with color B you’ll see that it’s offset from the first set of “dots.”

Keep on Weaving!

You’ll weave the second set of dots the same way you did the first. Keep weaving this pattern until you’re satisfied. I think you need at least 5 repeats of the pattern to get the dotted effect, but have fun and see what works for you.
