Weaving Tips || How to Weave a Rya Loop (video)

Rya Loop Video| The Weaving LoomI wrote about how to make rya loops here and today I’m sharing a stop-motion video of the process!

If you haven’t seen, I have added a link at the top of the blog to my YouTube Channel where you can see all my stop-motion videos.

Here are the steps again to creating Rya Loops:

step 1| place the thread over your warp strings in a ‘U’ shape. As you can see in the picture I’m using two threads as one, but you can use as many threads as you want.

step 2| bring a piece of the thread under two warp threads making a small ‘u’ shape inside the bigger ‘U’ shape. As you can see both sides of the small ‘u’ go under the two warp threads and then come up. Pull on the small ‘u’ loop and it will get larger as the big ‘U’ gets smaller. This creates your rya knot around the loop.

step 3| tighten the rya knot by pulling tight on the loop you created.

step 4| pull the thread tail to shorten the loop, if desired.

To continue making the rya loops, take the thread tail and place it over your warp threads in a ‘U’ shape again, repeating the steps above until you make as many as you want.

Hope you’re all having a good day! I’m off to eat lots of food and enjoy family.

Happy Weaving!

    Hi Kate,

    I’m still really struggling with this tutorial, haven’t managed to crack Rya Loops yet.
    Is there any chance of a video showing you do it in real time whilst talking through?
