Did you buy your patterns and Monks cloth? Have you prepped your fabric? Alright we are ready to move onto the next part. Before you begin weaving you will need to find the center of your Monks cloth. You could use a measuring tape to find the center or you could count all the tiny woven squares. Those would be very accurate ways of doing it. I like to do it a different way. Lay your Monks cloth on a flat surface.
Fold the Monks cloth in half length wise. Make sure you line up the edges and corners very well.
Fold the Monk cloth in half again. Make sure you line up the edges and corners exactly.
Find the folded corner.
Thread some colored yarn (different color then you will be using on your project) into a yarn needle. Then weave it into the center of the corner.
Pull the needle through along with the yarn.
Tie a knot with the yarn.
Now you will be able to easily find the center of your Monks cloth. It will be easy to spot the different colored yarn and it won't pull and tug at your Monks cloth like a safety pin would.
See the yarn in the middle of the cloth?
Now you are ready to get started but you will need to understand a few things about reading the pattern. I found a great video that will give you all the information you need to get started reading Sweedish Weave patterns.
Here are more stitches you may need to know.
If you have any questions please leave me a comment or send me an email. Happy Weaving :)
