Good, Old-Fashioned Crafting Fun - Loop Potholders
After all the weaving was done, I tried to
remember how to get the potholder off of the
loom. My quick internet search only showed
using a crochet hook to pull one loop end
through the adjacent one, but I remembered
doing all of that by hand. So, starting with a
loop at a corner, I removed it from its peg and
then lifted off the next one and slipped that
through the first, then the next, etc. continuing
all of the way around the frame. It got a bit tricky towards the last side when all of the loops
starting slipping off of their pegs because the
tension was gone from the other three sides, but
my daughter held things in place for us.
The next day, I couldn't resist making one all by myself.
What a charming little craft that is! I'm so glad we revisited it.
Next project: finger knitting! I already bought some pretty, multi-colored yarn today!
Have a super day!
