Hand Weaving

My first loom was a rigid heddle table loom from Ashford in New Zealand and available in the UK. I took my first lesson in mid Wales and never looked back. There are so many ideas to make, how about weaving a scarf and adding a crochet or knitted edge or an embroidery, the options are endless aren't they!
I now have an 8 shaft table loom, so many patterns to weave

Crochet and knit

How do you do that?
As you learn you find lots of answers.
Why are my crochet edges wonky?
What yarn should I use for my project?
Can I use a different yarn to the one in the pattern?
How much yarn do I need?
Should I use natural or synthetic yarns?
How do I know what size needles or hooks to use?
What do the crochet and knit abbreviations mean?
So many questions - I will help with some answers on my
How to? page
