    Diy Triangle Loom

    I wanted to re-share my DIY triangle loom. I spent $1.80 for the finish nails and the wood I already had on hand. The working area of the loom is 7ft 2 inches x 45 inches. I finished a shawl and after blocking the finished size of the project was 6ft 6 inches x 36 inches.

        LOL....total cost for both the loom and stand was under $15.....much of the material was already on hand. The worst of it was hammering in 714 nails.

      Current project. The colors aren’t showing well but this shawl is primarily gray with some pink and white.

        That is so cool! Great. Now I'm thinking about another loom... George is gonna kill me!

      Your loom is quite impressive. Can you adjust the size? I think I remember that you said that you drilled pilot holes for the nails. Did you use a nail gun or a hammer to set them?

        Hammer. Size is not adjustable.

      I have probably two dozen looms. Everything from a 36" 4 harness Norwood floor loom to a tiny 2" rigid heddle. The cost is not so much the issue. It's the room. My husband would faint dead away if I brought another one in the house.

      Shawl is complete! Getting ready to remove it from the loom and soak it.
