Here are some details about my project:
Category Weaving
Type Functional
Style Traditional, Eco-Friendly
A.A. on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? 4 x 1mx5cmx2cm wood (I used cheap pine); 4 x 12cmx1.2cm dowel; 28 x 10cmx1.2cm dowel (total dowel length about 340cm); wood glue; saw; chisel; woodwork-competent husband to do the chiselling; electric drill, 1.2cm drill bit (or whatever matches your dowel); sand paper

What are you most proud of? I'm not an experienced woodworker, but I managed to design and build this in a day without help - although I got my husband to neaten up the cut-out corners with his chisel because I can't saw straight!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Due to inexperienced woodworking, the corner cut-outs weren't identical, so it fits together better in one particular way. The corners are colour-coded with permanent marker to help me assemble it quickly. I didn't seal the wood - you may want to apply wood wax or varnish. I wouldn't recommend stain or wool oil, in case it comes off on your yarn.

Hi, a pdf is now available with sketches and assembly instructions if you are still interested. Happy weaving!

Thanks everyone for the positive comments! For those who would like more detailed instructions and diagrams, I have made a pretty rough PDF pattern for this (See link at left). I am asking $1.20 for it as I am finding my time very precious at the moment, I hope you will understand! If you buy the pattern and need more help, I will do what I can.
