I made the heddles today only to find out the directions must of been in error because I believe they should be twice the length that I ended up with.
I really think I need someone to walk me though getting started. Does anyone want to help me that has an Inkle loom in use already? I ended up with heddles loops 6 inches long, I believe they should be about 11 1/2” instead. I believe the heddles are put on by folding them in half and looping over the heddles bar so 6 inches would leave little space to pass a shuttle through.
The heddles directions that I followed were on this site: inkleweaving.com. Instead of dividing the length in half after measure from the heddle bar to the top of warp bar I think I was suppose to keep that measurement. The measurement I got was the 11 1/2 inches.
I am a bit lost. I am very good at following directions, I can put together almost anything that way, but the directions I’m finding are not very good.
I did just join an Inkle group and posted the directions off of the site I mentioned above and if they think my heddles should be the 11 1/2 inches like I think.
