Pickup Pattern for a Rigid Heddle Loom No 68

Quite a simple design but effective. This narrow band has been woven using my new Sami 2 hole rigid heddle loom (2HRH – The Beaivi Loom).

Isin Sami hat

The ground warp is threaded through the bottom row of holes and slots – alternating between hole and slot for each warp thread.
The ground warp is 12/2 worsted spun wool.
Warp length: 4 yards
White 12/2 wool: 12 ends
Blue 12/2 wool: 38 ends
Green 12/2 wool: 4 ends
Red 12/2 wool: 4 ends
Yellow 12/2 wool: 4 ends
Total: 62 ends
Thread the warp ends following the weaving draft below.

The pattern warp is woven using 7 warp ends of 6/2 worsted spun white wool that are threaded in the second (top) row of holes on the weaving reed.

The weft is woven with blue 12/2 worsted wool yarn. The pattern is picked up following the pattern draft.

I am weaving this with a slightly loose tension because I will be felting it afterwards.
I am planning to use it as a border for a handspun/handknit sweater that I am making.
