Easy Woven Stripes Potholder

Inside: Free loom woven Stripes Potholder pattern with written instructions, link to weaving chart and fully-captioned tutorial videos.

This is the easiest two-color potholder design. Even a beginner can make this in no time.

The Stripes Potholder is a classic two-color design of alternating stripes.  This simple pattern is great as a stand alone potholder or can be used with other designs to create a larger trivet.

NOTES 

The stripes design uses two colors that alternate on both the warp (vertical) and the weave (horizontal).

You place all the warp loops on the potholder loom first.  Then you weave the horizontal loops according to the row instructions.

In the row instructions below, directions written in parentheses ( ) are repeated.  The number of times to work the repeat are listed after the parentheses.

Do you mean the bigger loops? You can buy regular loops for the 7" potholder loom or large loops for the 10" potholder loom. CindWood Looms, Harrisville Designs and Friendly Loom all sell both sizes of loops.
