Product Description:

This kit is perfect for beginners and includes everything you need to weave wonderful projects. The set comes with a sturdy plastic loom measuring 7" x 7", 197 colorful stretchy cotton/nylon loops, a large crochet hook, a plastic needle, and rainbow-colored yarn. The 40-page book that accompanies the materials gives detailed directions on how to weave with the loom, as well as games you can play with potholders you make and directions for making other items like a purse and picture frame. Give this one to your children and you may just get some colorful potholders back from them.

Category Description for Potholder Loom Kits:

Making potholders is a great introduction to weaving and a fun, relaxing, and creative activity too. The results are very useable, which we love! Both of these kits are designed to last many potholders, with sturdy metal looms and metal weaving hooks. The metal loom pegs slant outward to prevent loops from slipping off, which is especially helpful for young kids! The colorful loops included with each kit are 100% cotton and custom-sized to fit the loom, which is often not the case in less expensive kits. The instructions included offer instructions on starting and finishing potholders, along with design ideas and suggestions for additional projects using the basic potholder. The traditional kit includes enough cotton loops to make two potholders, while the deluxe kit includes enough cotton loops to make six potholders. A refill pack of cotton loops is also available, which holds a colorful assortment of the same quality loops, enough to make another two potholders.

  Harrisville Designs, the manufacturer, now has a very cool online tool to view suggested patterns or to preview your own!

Great gift!
We bought this for our 5 yr old. The initial set of loops were quickly put on, the weaving took a day or so for her to feel comfortable and now she's mastered the binding of the edges. I would have liked a metal loom as I remember when I was a kid but the plastic is hard and has held up so far and my kids are not dainty with their toys. It didn't take long to go thru the bag of loops provided so be prepared to order an extra bag.
