An introduction to weaving without large looms, with 15 weaving projects and a guide to making your own tools.

In Simple Weave, the world of weaving opens beyond gigantic looms and inaccessible patterns. Kerstin Neumüller demonstrates how you can weave with tools that are easy to make yourself and often small enough to fit in your pocket.

Here lies inspiration for those who have never woven but are eager to try, as well as for experienced weavers interested in working with flexible and portable tools. Practical and beautiful keepsakes to make include Scandi-style bands, bracelets, pencil and laptop cases and a wall hanging. Kerstin also shares her journey from textiles to woodworking, offering instructions for how to make your own pocket-sized weaving tools.

The book is divided into three accessible chapters:

• Techniques and basic weaving theory. 

• 15 achievable weaving projects including bands, a pencil case, coasters and tea towels.

• Making your own tools. This section includes descriptions of how to carve a heddle, make a weave stretcher, carve a backstrap loom and make a frame loom.

Enjoy the mindfulness and rhythm of this traditional craft and create bespoke, contemporary pieces to fit your own style. 


Kerstin Neumüller is a crafter, tailor and author with many years of textile studies behind her. In 2020 she picked up a woodworking knife, which led her down a different path of carving weaving tools. Kerstin’s books include Simple Weave, Indigo: Cultivate, dye, create and Mend and Patch. She lives in Södermanland, Sweden.



‘Fifteen projects, not the usual…think small in size, big in quality. Pencil cases, bracelets…..I dare you not to lie awake with weaving what if scenarios….this time though, your intertwined dreams may not be out of your size bracket.’
