OK - I'm intrigued (very pretty by the way) so how do you double the width on a loom? Is there a guide/cheat sheet on line I might look at - this looks like it would be really fun to try.

Absolutel gorgeous! I'm anxious to double weave on my floor loom. I've done it with my rigid heddle loom.

How many shafts do you have?  You can double weave with rigid heddle (2 shaft) using pick up sticks

This shows tube, but by swapping out the middle sequence you can double the width instead

4 shaft

This is gorgeous, I'm threading a double weave herring bone project. I'm doing circular double weave for bags. Do you have any advice on threading the edges?

Thumper - tooting my own horn, here: on my website I have a couple of articles on how to construct both double layers and double width: http://bergdalaspinnhus.com/artikleng.html - scroll down just a little.
