Elongon™ 1" - R - Elongated Hexagon Pin Loom Kit
THIS LOOM IS ONE OF THE LOOMS TO MAKE THE SCANDINAVIAN STARDUST DOILIES BY EDITH VAN TASSELL IN "LITTLE LOOMS HOLIDAY 2020"
Our patent pending hexagon pin looms use a unique design and combine two weaving methods to make the weaving of plain weave or tabby hexagons possible. Add beads, or patterns like twill, and the possibilities are endless.
The Elongon™ 1" enables you to weave elongated hexagons for even more design variety.
This listing is for the second generation "Gen 2" loom, with headless pins and yds/wraps information on the back.
The Elongon™ 1" measures 1" in side length, and it takes about 1.6 yards of worsted weight yarn to weave one hexagon.
Project ideas to get you started:
- Use for home decoration, appliques, or doll size items.
- Combine the Elongon™ 1" hexagons with other pin loom shapes that have a side length of 1".
- Use single colors for geometric effect, multiple colors for expressive variety.
- Search online for quilt designs that use elongated hexagons for even more ideas.
The loom is made of quality birch plywood, finished beautifully with two coats of traditional clear Shellac, sealed with satin Poly. The hexagon weaving area measures a little less than 1 1/2" in width and 2 1/2" in length, and each of the six hexagon sides measures 1”.
