You can combine your woven pieces with your knitting. Imagine a stretchy soft cuff knitted right on to your woven jacket sleeve, or a woven vest with a knitted back.
Knitters understand working in sections, and loom-board weaving fits this approach. You can create shaped woven sections just as you create sweater sleeves and backs and fronts.
A large weaving loom is big and bulky. However, using a loom-board means you can carry your project with you.
We are not talking about those commercial, rigid pin-weaving frames that are so confining. We are talking about weaving curves and other special shapes.
You can make your own loom-board in an afternoon using materials you probably have at home right now.
Just about any type of yarn can be woven on a loom-board -- from bulky slubby yarns through gossamer threads; handspuns to chenille, and eyelash yarns. You determine how closely or far apart to string your warp. Try some Woven mittens with knitted cuffs
