Turn the traditional Scandinavian krokbragd weave around in this inkle loom technique

Using some simple additional string heddles to create a third shed, turned krokbragd is an easy, habit-forming way to make beautiful bands. Fiber artist and teacher Joan Sheridan walks you through this technique step by step, warping for a loom-controlled weave and creating the band pass by pass. By the end of the course, you’ll have a band of adorable woven sheep and the skills to make a more traditional motif. 

The course includes step-by-step instructions to set up and warp the loom, Joan’s tips for error-free, comfortable inkle weaving, and two complete patterns for turned krokbragd inkle bands.
