Notes: 

I wanted to make a tablet woven band that was clean and simple, with a Scandinavian feel to it.  I had made a practice band of Egyptian Diagonals in light blue and yellow and liked the color combination.  I borrowed the book "Nauhoja" by Viivi Merisalo from my guild library and played around with many of the patterns in The Loomy Bin software.  The original pattern only has 1 block, I created a version that has 2 blocks that alternate on each side of the band.  The final draft is shown in GTT software (Guntram's Tablet Weaving Thingy-PC only). 

The #3 crochet cotton makes a hefty, sturdy band, that I'd like to sew into a small bag to carry my iPhone on walks.

 

Appalling that I started this in May 2012, and finished in Sept 2013.  But backstrap weaving is really hard on my back.  
Anyway, this is a band that looks exactly the same on the front and the back. I placed it under 4 shafts, (4-holes) since Weavo makes you select that !

Width on Loom:

Notes: 

The turn sequence is pretty easy to remember. The center two cards never change turn direction, so you must release the twist every so often. Watching the pattern emerge is really fun! (I follow the Candace Crockett method of coloring the edges of my cards to tell where A, B, C, D is.)

The draft is designed by John Mullarkey and available if you take his workshop.

This speciality loom is designed and sold by John Mullarkey. It is well made and has many small details to make card weaving fun and easy. I recommend it highly for portability, and you can weave on a plane, sitting in coach, when the seat in front of you has been reclined! It weighs about the same as the Ashford Inklettte, and is only a bit larger in length and height. You cannot weave inkle bands on this loom, as there is no top peg for the sting heddles. John sells sets of smaller cards for these looms or that can be used on the Inklette, but here I am using full size cards, and the loom works perfectly.

Notes: 

Double Weave band woven on the inkle loom using 48 (four hole) cards/tablets. Pattern and much appreciated instructions from Linda Hendrickson's publication entitled 50 Designs From Around The World. A belt for my husband. First attempt at double weave using cards/tablets and in retrospect it probably would have been advisable to use a thicker yarn as I spent considerable time spotting errors and removing stitches... but like all new projects it was a treasured learning experience.

Tablet weaving- how NOT to do it.  

Warp your cards.  Then proceed to drop them, not once, but three times, while they aren't under control.

It's taken me almost 3 weeks to get this thing straightened out.

Planning to mix the bands I've been making and sew together a small case or bag.

Wasn't sure how to categorize this in terms of shafts and sett. "Sett" for me, for cardweaving, is number of cards per inch, not ends.

Draft Image: 
Notes: 

22 cards, after threading seperate into two packs (1) and (2) with cards 1,2 being in the first, 3-5 in the second, etc. "Start" or "Home" position has holes D and A on top. Pack one goes forward for four picks, while at the same time pack two goes forward as well for four picks. Then pack one goes forward four more, while pack two goes back for four. I find it helpful to turn them at the same time to make sure I did both.
