Basic Skills Necessary:

  • A basic understanding of weaving is beneficial but not essential.

Pattern Description:

This tutorial offers a basic introduction to weaving a 4 ply weave on a 7.5cm micro loom. This method can be applied to smaller or larger versions of this type of loom.

It covers setting up the loom, weaving and finishing off, producing a woven patch of 6.5cm square.

These small squares can be sewn together to make larger pieces of fabric such as bags and blankets, or if using larger version of this loom you can make items such as pot holders, place mats or coasters..... The possibilities are endless.

For this tutorial I have used embroidery silks to give a clear view and contrast in colour to make the lesson as clear as possible. The length of thread listed will allow some spare.

This tutorial consists of 26 steps over 29 pages and includes 84 full colour photographs.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • On the loom used - 7.5cm, a 6.5cm square patch is produced.


  • This tutorial requires a 7.5cm micro loom, a small weaving hook, a 4.5 inch weaving needle and a pair of scissors.

You Will Also Need:

  • Materials needed are 2 x 4 metre lengths of yarn and 1 x 2 metre length of yarn.
