How to Weave on a Cardboard Loomcomments (44) June 25th, 2008
Time to string your loom! I like to use worsted or sport-weight yarn. Leave it attached to the skein while you're stringing, and cut it off when you're done. Begin by wedging the end of the yarn into the first slit in the cardboard. Leave about a 3-inch tail hanging, as you see here.
Next, draw the yarn across the surface of the cardboard, and then wedge it into the first slit on the opposite side.
On the back side of the cardboard, wrap the yarn around and wedge it into the second slit, as shown.
On the front side, draw the yarn over the cardboard and then wedge it into the second slit on the opposite side.
Continue like this, stringing the yarn back and forth over the cardboard, using those slits you cut to anchor it. Your yarn should be strung snugly over the front of the loom, but not so tightly that it bends the cardboard.
