Kivrim Tablet Pattern

Adding More Cards

Kivrim patterns, often featuring hooks that are referred to as ram's horns, are of broadly Turkish origin. I think they look pretty cool and they were one of the first designs I wanted to try when I saw tablet weaving. I try to have each weaving project stretch a skill or learn something new in the process, so this pattern was most complicated tablet pattern to date with 26 cards and a non-balanced pattern.

Because I can't leave well enough alone, I also decided to try a new loom for this project, which I hoped would have a long working space for my tablets. Unfortunately, in the middle of this project my loom pegs became untenable. Because of a loom break the piece ended up being a lot shorter than anticipated. But still some valuable experience.
