Sunflower or Snowflake Coasters

These Sunflower Coasters were designed as an introduction to using pick-up sticks and heddle-rods with the rigid heddle loom.  These “accessories”- pick-up sticks and heddle rods - often seem daunting but are really quite versatile tools to use with your loom.  With them, you can create patterns on a plain weave background, or create different sheds/shafts that truly expand the capabilities of your loom with minimal additional expense.

These yarn packs include all the yarns needed to weave eight coasters in either Sunflower or Snowflake colors. Designed by Michele Marshall of Mingo's Corner Shop. The pattern is sold separately from these yarn packs.
