How to Weave on a Frame Loom : How to Make a Rug Pattern on a Frame Loom


Hi, I’m Debbie Huglin Vogel and I’m here with
Expert Village to help show you how to make a rag rug on a hand-made loom. Now, I really
like this pattern. And this is all just over and under weave. But now, here in the center
of the rug, I’d like it to have a little pattern. So, what I’m going to do is I’m actually going
to take every three, and go over and under. And when I do that, and I lay two layers of
it on, it will have more of a checker board pattern right there. So there you can see,
there’s three on the bottom. There’s three on the top. There’s three on the bottom. So
I want these three on the top. And you’ll see, it’s a bigger piece of cloth then in
there. So, if I get two or three of those layed on, it will be a nice pattern and then
I can go back to the plain stuff. Two or three on top. So there you can see there’s three
on the bottom, two or three on top. There’s three. Three on the bottom and the top. The
big problem with this is that it’s not as strong there. So you don’t want to do a pattern
like that too much on a rag loom, because we’re using such a wide piece of material.
When you’re using smaller material, like yarn, it really is easy to do that and go in there
and make patterns. Three on the bottom, three on the top. And then, after I’ve got these
laid in here like this, I want to make sure that I have the strong part to about where
I started the pattern. So, I want to do just single weave, right over here. That’s on the
bottom, I want it on the top. This one comes up. This one’s on the bottom, I want it to
come to the top. This one’s on the bottom, I want it to come to the top. This one’s on
the bottom, I want it to come to the top..And then here. So you can actually turn around
when you’ve got a long one, and go the other way. Since this one’s on the bottom, I want
it to come to the top. In fact, I know that I just want a few to few to go from the bottom
to go to the top. So, I can take three here. Bottom, top, bottom, top. Just make sure everything
is in the right place. And I can run my thread under it.

    Thanks so much for this lovely clear video – I will try it. In fact I can hardly wait!

    Nice use of larger materials so your technique is readily visible.
    What do you use to beat down the weft and pack your weaving nice and tight, for durability? My mother's fave tapestry beater of all her tools was a dessert fork.
    I so want to hand you & your students a pickup stick, and/or string heddle loops-on-a-stick, and/or Betty Linn Davenport's frame loom book for next steps!
    Nice beginning piece. Nice to see you have several. Keep up the good work!
