How to Weave Vertical Stripes
Vertical stripes are fun to weave, when you use just two colors it's called a pick and pick weave.
If you've never woven before go here, for the first lesson:
Weaving Pick and Pick
Weaving pick and pick on a small loom means the edges are going to demand a bit of care. We want to keep them as neat as possible.
• Here I wove a few rows of color A as a base.
• Weave 1 row of color B.
• Just as in weaving horizontal stripes, be sure to loop color A around color B.
• Weave 1 row color A.
• Weave 1 row color B.
• Repeat this pattern, and you’ll see a vertical stripe emerge. Just keep it up for as long as you want your stripe to be.
Get my Book!
- You never know where you might find yourself weaving.
- In the park, under a tree, or maybe even up in the tree!
- No worries, this little book will fit right into your project bag, so you can take it with you anywhere your heart desires. And you will be a happy weaver.
Here’s something fun to try.
• Weave 2 rows of color B.
• Weave 1 row of color A.
• Repeat the pattern, and you’ll see the vertical stripe switch on the warp ends. I finished my piece with color B to balance the design.
Once you master weaving pick and pick vertical stripes, weaving a checkerboard will be easy!
