Krokbragd Weaving on the Rigid Heddle Loom VIA ZOOM!



Krokbragd is a beautiful Norwegian weaving technique that opens up a variety of new ways to create weft faced patterns in your weaving. In class we will create bags using the very sturdy fabric that the Krokbragd structure yields, you will also have the option to keep the weaving as a traditional sampler. Krokbragd will not only advance your weft faced weaving skills but you will also be introduced to weaving with string heddle and a heddle rod, a skill that will be handy for any multi pick up stick patterns you might weave in the future. 

Supplies: Rigid heddle loom, 8 dent heddle, warping peg, heddle hook, craft paper or corrugated cardboard for winding onto loom, scissors, 3 stick shuttles, 3/2 or 5/2 perle cotton for making string heddle a dowel rod the same width as your heddle (you can use the extra apron rods that came with your loom or buy a dowel the same width as your apron rod from the hardware store), ruler or measuring tape, pick up stick

Recommended yarn: Warp- 5/2 perle cotton (the warp will not be seen so any color is fine- we will use roughly 250 yards) Weft: Scout or Shepherd's Wool worsted weight wool 3 colors total, you can mix and match these two yarns just be sure the colors have good contrast.
