MAKE A LOOM
Ready to get started right now? Make a loom from a piece of cardboard. Gather your materials: straightedge, crafts knife, double-strength cardboard or two single-strength pieces glued together, ruler or tape measure, pencil, glue. Cut the cardboard to 13 13×9¼ inches. Cut two strips of cardboard to 3∕4 3∕4×9¼ inches. Glue each of the 3∕4-inch strips ¾ inch in from each short end of the large rectangle. Mark every ¼ inch along the edges of each short end of the large rectangle. Cut the outside edges at every ¼-inch mark, stopping at the edge of the gluedon ¾ inch strip. The strips are on the front of the loom and hold warp away from the cardboard to make it easier to weave the weft yarns.
