Many of the earliest pin-loom publications featured pick-up patterns. When pin looms fell out of style, many of these publications went out of print, and the patterns were lost—but only for a time. Today’s pin-loom weavers have not only been sharing these historic pick-up sequences but also creating their own.

Curious about doing pick-up but don’t know where to start? This skill guide is for you. The guide includes instructions for reading pick-up sequences and charts, tips on supplies you need as a newbie, a list of pick-up pin-loom projects to get you started, and more. Just be careful: Once you start weaving pick-up on your pin loom it can be hard to stop!

Contents include:

  • Supplies
  • Reading a pick-up sequence
  • Honeycomb pattern
  • Projects to try
  • Next steps: level up
