Boye Scarf Loom - Help!


(NY)

My wife recently got a hold of a Boye scarf loom (red) and is very interested in learning how to craft with it. We have both watched the included instructional video and read the booklet thoroughly, however, each time she begins a project the scarf turns out very loosely connected (see pictures) that look nothing like the pictures in the book. Any suggestions?

Boye scarf loom help NEW
by: Jen Tavernier

Woot! Where using the double rakes, they all start out weird and loose. There are some links below, and I would suggest you go to Kristen's group on Facebook, (goodknit kisses) - she has worked out several fixes to even out the ends of things, on different looms. Also, she has her own vid channel, with tons of helps and how-tos on these.

Happy Looming! Jen
