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.
This pattern works well on the 2″, 4″, and 6″ squares and rectangles.
R 1 and 16: P
Even Rows: P2, (U3, O1) x 6, U3, P2
Odd Rows: P4, (U3, O1) x 5, U3, P4
