n her 2nd book of lessons and wearable patterns for the rigid heddle loom, Tamara Poff takes you "beyond the rectangle" once again to get bigger and better results from your little loom. With 12 flattering designs for sizes small to 3x, skill levels range from easy to complex. You'll find multiple options to suit varied tastes and skill sets using 12"-24" looms. Although some patterns add knitted or crocheted embellishments, alternate instructions are given for non-needlecrafters.
You'll explore detailed guidance on color theory and fiber selection, enhanced weave structures, specialized garment finishing options, and common roadblocks. For the adventurous, there are ideas to customize for your own designs.
