CARD WEAVING (also known as tablet weaving) is a way to create patterned woven bands that are thick, sturdy and beautiful. Cards are a simple tool, but the weavings they can produce are infinite in design and complexity. Use the cards on their own with a simple tensioning device, such as tying the yarn to a door knob and tensioning around your waist. Or use the cards on a loom. An Inkle Loom is an ideal companion, but you can also use them on a Cricket, Flip, table, or floor loom.
SCHACHT CARD WEAVING CARDS Schacht has developed a card that, at 3-1/2" inches square, is comfortable in the hand without being bulky.

Made of sturdy yet fl exible 24-point card stock, these cards will serve you well over many, many warps. The cards come in packages of 25, more than enough for a range of projects. All you need to add is yarn and a belt shuttle. You can start weaving complex bands at less than the cost of two coffees!
