This pattern is so simple, it’s almost embarrassing I haven’t posted it before now. Update: this is not my pattern after all. It’s really the Loomette Weaves #1 Reverse (see photo, below). Still, my instructions are easier to follow, I think.

Abbreviations and notes:

P = plain weave
U = under
O = over

Warp loom as follows:

Layers 1 and 2: use color 1 (sample shows Caron Simply Soft “Lavender Blue”)

At corner 3 change to color 2 (sample shows Caron Simply Soft “Soft Pink”); warp Layer 3, finishing at corner 2. Wrap yarn five times around loom, cut, thread needle.


Rows 1 and 16: P

Rows 2-15: U-1, O-3 seven times; end with P-3

I was going to post a few other photos, but I can’t readily find any in my stash. This is amazing because I’d swear I made a jillion of “3-and-1”. OK, maybe not a jillion, but at least a few others. When I run across some more samples, I’ll post them.
