Loom showing top of work previously extended over top of frame and fixed in place. Now it’s time to lengthen the working area again!

Step 1

Lay loom on flat surface with working side uppermost and unworked warp strands underneath.

The floor is a good surface!

  Gently ease top dowel out of one side of loom Rest dowel end on frame Ease dowel out at other side and rest on frame in the same way as before

  Both ends of dowel laying on top of loom. Step 1 completed!

Step 2

Repeat process with working edge (lower) dowel


Slide warp strands toward the side of loom where dowel end is being removed.

Step 3

Lay dowel underneath frame

  Gently ease upper dowel (top of work) down to lower edge of frame

  Determine how much space you want to create Insert spare dowel into place to create fold area

  Bring the top edge dowel up and over the folding dowel
