1st Kayu Challenge

The Kayu multi loom was born more than 5 years ago on a sheet of paper. The idea was to create my ideal pin loom! After spending years building my own looms in different geometric shapes and already running out of space to store them.. I wanted to design the pin loom of my dreams.... Continue Reading →

DIY Hanging baskets

New year, new project! This beautiful and practical idea of hanging baskets was not entirely my invention… browsing Pinterest, I saw several bags like these, but crocheted. They seemed so easy and fast to make! From a simple crocheted triangle, they made these little cute and useful bags. Then I remembered my Kayu multi loom... Continue Reading →

Placemats in the Kayu: Bonus Track

The truth is that the possibilities are unlimited, there are so many... Continue Reading →

Let´s make placemats in the Kayu

For me, the magic of pin looms happens when we join the woven pieces and form something new and unexpectable. Because sometimes it is difficult to imagen that joining woven squares we can achieve that are way more complex and amazing than simple throws, don´t you think? It's hard for us to imagine objects in... Continue Reading →

Asymmetrical Patterns for Christmas

When you weave a new piece on a pin loom, do you design it beforehand or just throw yourself into the creative abyss? In my case, I do both. Sometimes I have a design quite studied, sketched and the colors well thought out before I start. Other times I don't previously think about anything, I... Continue Reading →

Make blankets with woven squares

When the cold days begin, it is inevitable to think about knitting, don´t you think? More specifically, think about what we are going to knit this winter.

Woven square designs to inspire you

A few months ago one of my students asked me where she could get woven square designs: combinations of colors and stitches, basically. At first I thought I didn't know where from, because maybe the fun lies in inventing the patterns by ourselves, or not? Maybe not! My next thought was, EUREKA, she is now... Continue Reading →

When going "live", many things... Continue Reading →

How to be creative with or without a pin loom

You have probably heard that when someone teach you something you forget it faster than when you learn it by yourself. Although learning it by yourself takes more time, no doubt. But there is something even more important that you should know: when you learn something by yourself, you discover things that no one could... Continue Reading →

Adapt 4×4″ patterns to the Kayu – PART 1

When you have many patterns to weave on 4x4" looms (Zoom Loom / Weave-It) and also pattern books and perhaps you have already ventured to invent your own stitches and patterns, surely you have wondered if you can use them on other larger looms, to make larger pieces. The answer is YES! And in this... Continue Reading →

Learn the Zig Zag effect

What I'm going to tell you, I'm sure it happens to you too.. When I don't have a project in mind, I take some leftover yarn from here and there and... I try to see what comes out! And that's how, using the Lion Bran yarns that I had left over from the Pompa Poncho,... Continue Reading →

How to combine color yarn

When it comes to being creative, many of us are afraid of mixing colors, of not combining them correctly, of making it hard to make a garment, of finishing it and only then seeing that the colors we choose do not completely convince us... does this happened to you ? Well, today I want to... Continue Reading →

What if.. I don´t have any bulky yarn?

A few days ago I finished a weaving on the bias pin loom class at @stitchesevents in which my students asked me a lot about yarn thicknesses: what is the ideal one for pin looms, how to distinguish the right one among rustic yarns, sometimes without classification, what to do if I don´t want to...

3 Basic Shapes to Weave on the Bias

About 13 years ago I discovered pin looms. My mother had gone to Argentina for a trip and she had seen an artisan in the street weaving with this "wooden frame with nails", which caused her a lot of curiosity. My mom is an avid crocheter, regid loom weaver, macramé maker and knitter, but this... Continue Reading →

Cochamó Purse

In my newfound (silent) campaign "wear your weavies," I've been more inspired than ever.

Patterns to Create

I've been wondering for a long time what "moves" me about this particular technique, pin loom weaving. And then, the next question, what moves you to follow it, to use my pin looms, to make my patterns. They are doubts that are always there, but what I do know is my purpose in this and...

Sustainable Infinity Scarf project

Diving in IG a random day, I came across this incredible label and I bought a few yarns immediately. They feel like cotton made, fresh and cozy, but not too heavy as cotton. I searched a bit more where this label came from and I could know the story behind her founder, Rosario. A few... Continue Reading →

7 Creative Christmas napkin folds to try

I took 3 small balls of yarn I had here and there. With the three of them at the same time I wove the larger size of square on the Kayu weaving loom (you can either knit, crochet or weave a 12x12" square) and voilà! ..I started playing with it and a golden paper napkin... Continue Reading →

Butterfly pattern

Now that I found an easy way to digitally design patterns (and really enjoying it) today I bring you the first pattern that I have ever designed and tested in the Kayu weaving loom!

3 capelets inspired by Outlander series

I discovered this TV series just a few weeks ago and I have seen the three seasons already (and some episodes more than once).
