When you get to the edges and the metal rods, you will want to wrap your yarn around the rods – these will be removed at the end.
Take a few arm lengths of Yarn A at a time, and wrap them around the large wooden weft needle supplied with the loom. If you don’t have a wooden weft needle, try using large tapestry or yarn needle with an eye wide enough for your yarn.
When you reach the soumaks, carry the Yarn A you are tabby weaving with underneath the soumak on the back of the work. Keep an eye on your tension, you will want it taught enough not to sag behind the soumaks, but not so tight that you are pulling on the metal rods at the edges.
Tip: use the comb included in the loom to push down your rows very now and again – this will help keep them neat and uniform.
Continue tabby weaving and filling in around the Yarn B soumaks using Yarn A until you reach a few centimetres from the top, or your desired length.
You do not need to cut the warp threads at the bottom of the piece – instead simply slide them off the loom.
At the top of the loom, you may want to use the warp threads to tie around a length or wood or stick, to hand your loom from. If you do, cut your warp threads at the top of the loops, and tie two together around your chosen hanger, until you reach the end.
Weave in any ends, and trim your tassels.
