|Weaving with worsted weight yarn is a little tough, |
but it's worth the effort!
There is no pattern for this pillow, as I made it up as I went along. It began with the Schacht Zoom Loom I got at the TNNA Trade Show last summer, which I thought would be a fun way to use up leftover bits of yarn. My first squares were made with sock yarn, since that is what I have the most of in my stash, but I decided that using a thicker yarn would make a pretty great pillow fabric. I used leftover worsted yarns to warp the Zoom Loom, then created the weft (woven part) with my own handspun yarn. It was a little difficult to weave with such thick yarn, but the fabric it created was absolutely lovely!
