WARPING THE LOOM The first step to any weaving project is warping the loom, or putting your warp thread in place. Place the loom so the pegs are at the top and bottom. Tie your warp yarn around the bottom left-hand peg (or the farthest left peg of the area you will use). Draw the warp around the peg directly above the lower peg where the warp is tied. String the warp down around the next lower peg to the right of where you started, and continue stringing it around the top and bottom pegs, working your way left to right, until the warp ends at the bottom right-hand peg of the loom (or the area you will use). Tie a knot to secure it. Tip: Weaving a 2-inch-wide length of cardboard at the base of your warp before beginning your project makes for easier warp tying when finishing your project.
