I warped my Schacht inkle loom this weekend for a tote bag strap with the help of my wife, who has never woven on an inkle loom before. The band uses a 3/2 mercerized pink cotton yarn from WEBS, a doubled 5/2 UKI light blue yarn for the flower petals, and yellow carpet warp mixed with hand-dyed rainbow-colored 5/2 tencel for the flower centers. The band’s plain weave flower design is a simplified version of the “clasped warp” technique in The Weaver’s Inkle Pattern Directory; that pattern uses multiple warp yarns to change the colors of the flower centers. I cheated by using the rainbow tencel to change colors automatically. My wife will weave the inkle band, as well as the main fabric for the tote bag on the rigid heddle loom. Of course, the kitties kept us company as we worked.
