The instructions demonstrate how to make the wee coaster with fringe and without fringe.
- Warp requires 4 yards of any weight or thickness (as long as it fits in the grooves) yarn or string. This amount takes into consideration wrapping the warp entirely around the front and back around every slot.
- Weft requires about 10 yards of worsted weight yarn. Weft requirements will change with different weights or types of yarn.
Wee Weaver is also available in three other setts/gauges ; 8 ends per inch (8.0 e.p.i.), 10.0 e.p.i and 12.0 e.p.i. Phone or email to place an order for these additional sizes. (519-207-2880; firstname.lastname@example.org)
