Details of the design of a DIY ribbon loom that fits on a table, handles up to 100 threads and has virtually unlimited weaving length. Total cost to build loom is under $20 all parts are available from dollar store and hardware store. The loom will assist the weaver in making fine thread ribbons at home.
Building a ribbon loom – DIY project, a cross bread of Inkle loom and large loom technology and materials available from the local hardware store or garage. Goals: create a loom that does not have a maximum 11 yard limit for weaving. Reduce thread waste, increase portability and control of warp tension. Keep cost of parts under $20. No glue required.
All I wanted to make was a simple pair of baby socks for a grandbaby that is due in the next couple of months. I figure it would take just a couple of hours of work.
I began my project by casting on and learning how to do the knit and the purl stitch on the loom, I noticed a couple of issues for me right away.
