Bow Loom Experiments

Her is my first attempt at a bow loom. I used the article in the May/June 2011 issue of Handwoven magazine. The directions are very clear, and it was easy to follow them. I think my third grade students could handle this type of weaving, perhaps with larger yarn and pony beads? I used 8/2 cotton for the warp and weft, only because that is all I had. The article in Handwoven specified 3/2 or 5/2 cotton. I added 2 extra warp threads to make up the difference in width.  What a fun project! Thanks to Marilyn Romatka, who wrote the article.

Luna would be so proud! She is one of our Nigerian Dwarf goats.
