Dappled Pillows Weaving Pattern
Note: PDF pattern is delivered electronically. Download instructions will be emailed to you at purchase.
These intricate pillows are done on the rigid heddle loom with pick-up sticks. The pattern looks tricky, but the pick-up patterning is marked by the different warp colors and weaves faster than you might expect.Â
In addition to weaving instructions, the pattern includes instructions for how to sew your handwoven piece into a simple envelope pillow case.
