Scarves

After practicing with the Baby Loom I have made a couple of scarves.

This one is made with the Small & Baby Looms and is made with one 50g ball of Drops Alpaca Camel Beige

I made 10 motifs on the Small Loom with 3 rows and 10 motifs on the Baby Loom with 6 rows. I joined the motifs together by slip stitching, leaving the loops on the front to make the frill.

This one is made with the Rectangle & Baby Looms and is made with one each 50g ball of Drops Alaska light olive, olive and dark pink. The flowers take only a few grams of wool so a great way to use up odd bits of leftovers.

I made 3 motifs on the Rectangle Loom, using the two green yarns together I wrapped once (making 2 rows). I knotted with some odd pink wool and then I made 6 flowers on the Baby Loom wrapping 2 rows. I joined the rectangle motifs together using the butterfly twist technique and tidied the edging using the butterfly braid technique. I cut 16 25cm lengths of each yarn to make the tassels, 8 for each end – I forgot to cut mine level!!

Photography isn’t my thing, as I always say, these are much prettier than they look!

All wool is available from Wool Warehouse and the Butterfly Looms are available from my website Croft Looms

I will be at the Marlborough Town Hall Craft Fair on 22nd March 2014.  Marlborough is a lovely market town full of gorgeous shops housed in beautiful buildings and on Wednesday and Saturdays there are well stocked markets along the High Street, the second widest in Britain.

I will be selling Butterfly Looms, knitting looms and accessories to make blankets and scarves, I will of course be sitting along side showing passers by how to use the looms.

So if you are in Wiltshire and fancy a stroll around one of the prettiest towns, in an area full of pretty towns, visit Marlborough on Saturday 22nd March.

Have a Looming Great Christmas

Looking for stocking fillers that will last past Boxing Day?

The baby and small butterfly looms are great for making scarves and accessories – ideal for keeping away those post Christmas ‘I’m bored!’ moans.

No knitting or crocheting experience needed, by just wrapping and knotting a scarf can be made quickly and easily – and (so you get to enjoy the holiday) needs a minimum of supervision.

The whole Butterfly Loom range is available through EBay, click on the pictures below to visit EBay :
