Overview

Looping is an ancient tradition that continues to evolve as contemporary makers put their own spin on it. Older than weaving, knitting or crochet, modern nomads love the structure of this Stone Age technique. It's so stable it can't unravel, which makes looping perfect handwork for travel, commutes, and social stitching.

Now you can learn looping basics the 21st century way. This e-book includes 66 diagrams and photographs, links to both right-handed and left-handed video demonstrations, and sample projects to help you build a strong foundation of skills. Whether you're a beginner or have other textile experience, you'll find the emphasis on thread control helps prepare you to adapt looping to your own tastes and materials. If you're an art instructor, this e-book can introduce you to effective ways to model techniques and inspire your students to explore beyond simple knotless netting.

With this timeless technique, there's no need to conform to someone else's gauge or pattern. As you learn to trust your own eyes and instincts to make projects that suit your own tastes and materials. you'll see: There are new ideas to discover, even in a tradition that dates back thousands of years.
