Loom Woven Fresh Green Afghan Reviewed by Deb Carter on 2014-12-11 *
I tried this with the loom and this is way to complicated to follow,..,it simply did not work. I also found that the tool for the loom is too short for this size square, I was struggling to get it thru the last row.

Not sure how anyone can create this afghan on the Martha Stewart loom. In the directions for this pattern states to place 20 pegs in every other slot, this leaves the swatch with gaps. In the directions in the Martha Stewart loom guild it states to place 40 pegs in every slot making it rather difficult to slide the weaving tool through the yarn on the loom. That's another thing; if you want to create the larger afghan the weaving tool is not long enough to go all the way across the loom making it easy to drop a stitch or two. Love the afghan but need to look for a loom that can accommodate this pattern.

This was my very first weaving project ever. The instructions on the MS loom kit are not very precise. For instance, it does not say to start/end your project with a slipknot, etc, to keep the weave on the loom. For a very beginner like me that's some pretty important info that it left out. I took a previous poster's advice and checked out the videos on YouTube. They were great and helped out a lot! As far as this pattern goes, it was a lot of fun for my first project. The picture is deceiving though because the squares do not turn out as large as it shows, unless that is a mini chair. If you just use one strand of yarn it will come out way too loose so you need to use 2 strands. If you want a lighter blanket just use one strand, but put all the pegs in, not every other peg. The blanket will be lighter but won't be as loose. I used every other peg as instructed and doubled the yarn. I made errors, but the result wasn't too bad considering it was my first project with the loom.

Loom Woven Fresh Green Afghan Reviewed by KAREN COOPER on 2012-03-30 *****
I made this using 2 strands of Lionbrand Homespun and was very pleased with the results. Rather than finishing off each block as the pattern book describes, I slip stitched around each loop while on the loom to secure the loops. I then pulled each loop through the loops on the adjoining squares which made finishing especially easy. No sewing required. I did not find any problems with the original pattern as written. You do end up with 40 pegs per side alternating every other hole. The corner hole and adjacent holes are left empty. This made a light, airy afghan. Use 3 strands if you want a heavier weight.

Loom Woven Fresh Green Afghan Reviewed by Mary Pilecki on 2011-12-28 *
This pattern was apparently deisgned for the Martha Stewart Loom Kit. It's a beautiful pattern, but the instructions basically direct you to the MS Look Kit instructions -which are poor at best. I found some videos online at Lion Brand's YouTube site - very useful, but there was an error in the pattern on the number of pegs to use (s/b 84) - and LB is fixing that. However, even with the right number of pegs, I still think there is a problem - the weave is much too loose. I'm going to play with it myself and see what comes of it. If you understand weaving, this may be fine - but otherwise I'd start with something smaller - using the videos.
