SOUMAK

Take a length of chunkier yarn or rov­ing and weave the end through a cou­ple of warp threads to se­cure it. Work­ing with the other end, wrap the yarn over the top of two warp threads and twist it back through to­wards you.

Re­peat this step with the next pair of warp threads, and con­tinue across the loom. If your yarn is thin­ner, wrap the yarn over ev­ery warp thread in­stead of ev­ery two – this will cre­ate a much smaller soumak.

For the se­cond row, re­verse the tech­nique, this time wrap­ping the yarn in the op­po­site di­rec­tion. Re­peat all the way across the width of the loom, and the two rows to­gether will form a soumak ‘plait’.
