If you are a pin-loom weaver, then you are already familiar with the 3-layer warping technique. Did you know you could apply it to potholder loom weaving!? If you are producing a tabby (over-under) fabric with no twills, then you can weave a potholder much more quickly, with more even tension, and less wear-and-tear on your loops and hands. Here’s how:
Step 1: place loops on every other peg of your horizontal.
Step 2: place loops on every other peg of your vertical.
Step 3: place loops on the empty pegs of your horizontal.
Step 4: weave loops on the empty pegs of your vertical.
Voila! A finished potholder with half the weaving.
