This is honeycomb, my friend! If that word makes you think of bees, you are on the right track.
In episode 76, I am walking you through the fabulous world of the honeycomb pattern. To create this curvy, dimensional weaving pattern, you simply need to watch a few spots when dressing the loom. Then, grab your two contrasting shuttles, and off you go! The bees will be jealous!

Show Notes –
Honeycomb on a rigid heddle – While I don’t own a rigid heddle loom, I’ve had occasions to play with one. I find them completely lovely – a perfect little starter loom! Schacht published a blog post all about creating honeycomb using this sweet little loom. Take a look here for more details.
Treadles and tie-ups – If you are interested in a refresher on all things treadles and tie-ups, I have just the ticket for you! In episode 35, I talked about that exact topic. (I even crawled underneath the loom – just for you!) You can see the entire video here.
October Weave Along –
The October Weave Along is nearing the end! The participating weavers have created gorgeous and brilliant things! If you haven’t checked out this month-long weaving program yet, there is still time. You are invited to join us!
We have a Facebook group called the Acton Creative October Weave Along where weavers are connecting from all over! And there is much more information for you at the homepage right here.
So if you are looking for some inspiration to return to weaving, or want to chat with other weavers, or simply want to try your hand at some 1/3 twill (our official October Weave Along pattern), this is the place for you! I can’t wait to see you there!
