Weaving Herringbone Wash Cloths on a Rigid Heddle Loom•
Posted on March 07 2023
More wash cloths!
I will eventually replace all of the ones in my bathroom with handmade ones. Eventually.
I used a course by Kelly Casanova to learn how to get everything in place for the herringbone pattern. It's a paid course, but it's worth it for me to have all the mental work done for me since it can get complicated to do Extra Stuff on a rigid heddle loom!
I don't know what it is about herringbone, but it's so pretty to me. This won't be the last you see of herringbone weaving, that's for dang sure.
Enjoy, love you. Larissa
