Here is a howto for basic weaving that can produce really nice textiles. The setup takes forever so prepare to be frustrated with how much time this can take, but it's worth it in the end.

Technique Materials

Wood, screws, a dowel, yarn and/or string, a fork

    This is amazing. Now I can weave my own scarves without having to learn how to knit!

    I am ready to get started, but could you please add the how to on how you tie off the ends and remove from frame? Thank you. Can’t wait to get at it.

    I’ve been waiting for a tut like this forever!

    I do not have a loom, but I have a huge door from the shower panels that I almost threw away. I have I feeling I could use it as a loom, seeing your pictures!

    Many special 10X!!!

    I do it a bit differently, more simply, but this method could be good to try… My frame is an old window frame. :-) And I have nails in it to hold the threads. I actually inherited it from my sister who ceased to be interested in weaving…
