Turtle Weave-Along!

Let’s take a break from garment weaving and make some turtles … May 23, 2023 is World Turtle Day, and no better reason do we need to weave something cute and cuddly to celebrate!

Here is everything in a nutshell:

WHAT Make a pin-loom-woven turtle. All pin-loom enthusiasts are welcome to participate. Any pin loom, any size, any pattern (see suggestions below), any yarn.

WHERE Join us on Facebook or on Ravelry. If you are not on social media, you can still reach me through the contact page.

WHEN The Weave-Along (WAL) starts now and will end on May 23rd, 2023


You can use any pattern you want and even make up your own turtle. However, here are several suggestions to get you going quickly:


I’ve setup a Pinterest board “Pin-Loom Turtles” where we can post pictures of our finished turtles! When you post pictures of your finished turtle(s) on social media, feel free to tag me so that I can add it to that board.


To add to the fun, I decided to sponsor a TURTLE loom as a prize. Here is how it works: Each picture of a finished turtle on the “Pin-Loom Turtles” Pinterest board is like a ticket entry to win. On World Turtle Day I will randomly draw one entry on that board, and the winner will be able to choose a free TURTLE loom of his/her choice.

Please ask any questions that you may have in the comments section below, or contact me!

    I am so new at this. Iโ€™m not even sure what my loom is, it has sets of 3-nails in a square. I think I would need the pattern mentioned above by Deb Essen, but not sure. I have a 4โ€ loom. Thanks for any help!
