We chose to weave intermittent twill with eight shafts to make the fabric as fluffy as possible with a large pattern. Thanks to easy straight treadling, the blanket is completed quickly!

Weaving instructions

Leave approx. 15 cm for the fringe on both ends of the fabric. Pick up two picks of plain weave at the beginning and end of the fabric. See at the end of the page for pick-up instructions. Plain weave picks make it easier to tie fringes, and the edge becomes neat.

Weave the blanket according to the treadling instructions with light beige wool yarn. The sett of the weft is 4 picks per cm. The woven length is 169 cm.

Make 5-thread overhand knots according to the pattern repeat. The outermost fringes come with 6 threads. Cut the fringe to an even length.

Air out wool to clean it! If necessary, hand wash in lukewarm water at 30oC. Carefully shape the correct dimensions and let dry on a flat surface.


Warp the loom with dark wool warp for a change! Black is always a safe choice. Other convenient colors are dark brown and dark blue, which is currently trending in home decor. The diagonal stripe pattern comes out beautifully when you weave with light or slightly lighter weft than the warp.

Pick up the plain weave at the ends of the blanket

The weave often forms short and long floats, making it difficult to tie the fringes. The edge easily ends up looking untidy, no matter how evenly knotted. It is easier to finish scarves and shawls if you pick up plain weave at the ends.

You will need a weaving sword that is longer than the width of the warp. A suitable width of the weaving sword is 5 to 6 cm. Weave a few centimeters with a scrap yarn at the beginning of the warp.

1. Pick up every other warp thread on the weaving sword.
2. Turn the weaving sword upright and throw the weft into the opened shed.
3. Remove the weaving sword and beat up the weft to the fell of the cloth.
4. Pick up the opposite warp threads on the weaving sword than before. Weave another plain weave pick in the same way as above 2. and 3.
Continue weaving with the proper pattern. Pick up the plain weave picks at the end of the cloth in the same way as in the beginning.
