This collection of six designs is specially created for the Cindwood Looms 56-peg small potholder loom. Why a special collection? Many of the metal and plastic frame looms have very small tines to hold the loops, which means the count is larger on each side of the loom. The "typical" patterns will not fit on a smaller peg loom with 14 pegs to each side. The joy of working on the Cindwood loom is that the large pegs hold the loops beautifully in place as you work on your potholder. The 56-peg loom creates a
5-inch square potholder or hot pad.
In addition to the six patterns, I have included a few tips and tricks to help your potholders turn out picture perfect. Harrisville Cotton loops were used for all of the samples and are highly recommended for your potholder projects.
About the patterns:
The patterns are set up to describe the two "sides" of the weaving process. The first is setting up the loops, running them across the loom to prepare them for weaving. This is Side 1, non-woven side in the patterns.
The second "side" is the weaving portion of the potholder. Colors are given in the order they are used for both sides. A loop count is given to help you sort out your colors and plan your project.
My patterns are visually accessible. They are written in easy to read large print 24 point Arial font, with all black text on white background, single column format, no italics, and all directions fully written out. No charts are used. The patterns read clearly with read out loud and screen reader software. Images have alt text descriptions.
