"Surprisingly easy to learn! It's the fastest way to unwind and relax." - Jennifer J. .★★★★★5.0


Online / On Demand

This class teaches how to adapt a standard 10" potholder chart to create shadow weave designs on your 4" Zoom Loom. 

Lessons include: 

  • Introduction to shadow weave, potholder patterns, and pattern adaptations
  • Three templates for converting potholder patterns to Zoom Loom format & tips on choosing and printing the correct template
  • Warping instructions
  • General weaving instructions for this method
  • Row-by-row instructions for two original patterns that begin with row-by-row directions and images and transition to standard weaving notation (both in conjunction with charted patterns)
  • Information about choosing other suitable patterns from an extensive online potholder pattern library plus photo of some of those patterns woven on Zoom Loom

This class has been developed with right-handed weavers (who weave from right to left and rotate the loom as needed) in mind. Left-handed weavers and those who do not rotate the loom may need to adapt some steps. 

Supplies Needed

  • Zoom Loom with 6" weaving needle
  • 4 yards each of two contrasting colors of worsted-weight yarn for each square. Suggested yarns include my hand-dyed yarn sets and our Malabrigo yarn sets. Stronger contrast in colors will produce a more distinct pattern.
  • Scissors

Optional but helpful

  • A second 6" weaving needle
  • A small piece of masking tape or painter's tape
  • Ability to print a letter-sized PDF pattern

NOTE: This method can involve a LOT of counting rows and threads!

If you have not yet woven standard Zoom Looms squares, consider becoming familiar with that technique first. Use the instruction booklet that came with your Zoom Loom and Angela's Zoom Loom Tips

About your instructor: Angela Bengtson
