What is continuous strand weaving? Weaving on a triangle loom is fun, creative, easy and quick. There is no elaborate planning and measuring process. Triangle looms are great for weaving plaid patterns and continuing onto more elegant lace patterns. The process is simple to learn and is enjoyable for adults and children of any age. Continuous strand weaving has no separate warp and weft but uses one continuous strand of yarn. This instruction is a basic class on continuous strand weaving and can be used as an entry to more advanced techniques such as twill, lace, double weaves, inlay, tartans, and other color sequences, and for the designer!
