Default Yarn craft for hot pads needed

When my kids were little they used to make these and now their kids need some summer activities. I found the wooden frame ---It is 6 sided with nails spaced about 1" apart all around the top of it. You weave the yarn around and around and then tie it off. But for the life of me I have no idea the exact way to make it. Does any of this make sense or sound familiar to anyone? If so I would love the directions....

Our kids had a 4 sided metal loom, I've never seen a six sided one. Was it home made?
MIL & FIL had looms called For Love & Money, they made placemats & small mats set a coffe cup on . Later FIL made some from wood. Would this be what you are looking for ?

I know the ones you mean, but this is a home made loom like thing. They have made the square ones with the rag like loops, but this is to put under hot dishes. Thanks anyway....We may change the plan. ha....

All I remember are the metal looms you stretched jersey loops over in one direction, then wove the next through in the other.
Here's one shown on e-bay:

Oh, thank you so much, Weary,,,,,yes, that is what I am looking for...What I need are just the instructions and the All Craft site had several offering the email the patterns. Some were posted quite a while ago, but will hope she will still send them...Thanks again....I cannot join the message boards there right now as they were having spam problems, so will just hope I can get them since I couldn't log on their forum....

Ammie,
I remember the pads you are talking about. I really don't have the instructions, but it seems like they went back and forth, cris crossing each other.

Then when it's all done, they would take yarn and tie off each intersection. After each intersection was tied, they could take it off the loom and it would be finished.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

I was thinking about those same pads, the other day.

Those looms are the ones my MIL & FIL used to make place mats & cup mats . FIL was going to give the looms to us & MIL got very upset, she enjoyed weaving with them . FIL made a six sided loom from wood also .

Thanks to everyone on this site I now have my directions and it won't be long before little grandson will be busy...Just one of the twins likes to do this kind of thing. I taught him how to finger knit and he is not stop knitting all these long snakes. I just got the directions from the All Crafts lady that posted she would be happy to send them out. I think it was dated 2004 and then updated in Jan.07...She sent them right away with more patterns too.

They must be a revival as they go for pretty good prices on ebay. Ours were homemade wooden ones too....the originals were plastic I guess.

Ammie,
The hot pad directions the lady sent, do they sound like the hot pads I was talking about in my other post on here?

Yes, Soup,,,,that is the one I remember to be easy etc. But the directions and patterns that I got were for some more complicated things too. But I just want the easiest one for the boys to make....

Did you get the simple instructions too? I'm wondering how hard it would be to make a loom. Would you be willing to email them to me?

I really don't know how to make the loom. It's 6 sided and needs to fit together perfectly. I just lucked into finding one at our garden club garage sale where I was working last weekend. My DH said he wouldn't attempt making it, but if you do woodwork I am sure you could do it. The ones on ebay are plastic I think, but I have looked at both Hobby Lobby and Michaels to see if they had the looms and I didn't see anything like it there.

I haven't even printed out the instructions yet, but it would be very simple to just forward the email on to you to download. It seems like she sent me 3 different files so it's pretty long. If you would like me to send them on to you just send me an email. Balikian@aol.com There are pictures of the loom so maybe you could find someone to make you one from looking at that....

sent. thanks a bunch. Put lap loom patterns in the subject line.

You might want to try the circle looms for him too. Those have lots of online patterns.

Ok, Thanks. I thought I was remembering it right.
I bought my DD one of those round looms for knitting.
I never did see the loom you were talking about, in the stores.
