How to Weave a Small Table Mat With Home Made Loom

I have shared on how to Weave a small table mat of size 12 inches by 12 inches, made with Acrylic Nylon hand knitting yarn.

I have used a home-made loom for this project. My husband made this loom for me. It is square in size with 12 ” by 12 ” inner dimensions. The frame is made of 3/4th-inch thick plywood with one-inch width on all sides. The nails on the frame are spaced at 1/2 ” center t center

You need two different matching colors of Acrylic Nylon hand knitting yarn. I have used Sea Green and Light Biscuit colors. The yarn packs are 100 grams each. about 25 to 30 grams of each color is required for this project.

Different sizes of crocheting needles will also come in handy while weaving the mat.

First I have started with sea green colored yarn

Tie one end of yarn on the nail on one edge
Use a colander or such container to keep the yarn. This will prevent the yarn from rolling on the ground
The gap between the nails is almost equal to 10 times thickness of the yarn. So we will use about 8 strands of yarn in between.
Start from the 4th nail and warp 4 circles of yarn around the opposite nail. This will give us 8 strands of yarn on each row.
Make three rows like this with the same color

Continue to wrap three rows at the center and three rows on the other edge as shown with the same color. There is no need to cut the yarn but can be taken along the outer edge of the nails

Take the yarn along the outer edge of the nails and warp perpendicular same as earlier rows
