Weaving with cards or tablets

Tablet Weaving Cards

I have designed some new tablet weaving cards that are made of durable plastic, because I didn’t like to use the matt board ones. I found that they tended to wear out rather quickly.
I designed these cards to be made of plastic so that they would be able to withstand the friction that is placed on the tablets during weaving. The edges are smooth and the cards turn easily.
The plastic tablets are not mass produced, but are made locally by skilled craftsmen. read more

Tablet Weaving Pattern: belt74

This is my second tablet woven belt. Instead of using wooden cards, I wove this belt with the Lacis brand of plastic cards. I found these slightly easier to handle because they are thinner than the wooden ones, so fit in the palm of my hand better.

I used Finnish cotton yarn for the warp and weft (6 ply Kalanka) in light green and yellow.
No Ends: 40
No Cards: 10
Warp: 6 ply Kalalanka cotton, 4 yard length
Yellow: 20 ends
Green: 20 ends
Weft: Yellow 6 ply Kalanka cotton. read more
