I am an artist who works in a very wide variety of artistic mediums. I am usually able to decipher "how-to" instructional books after going over the instructions several times, but I learn much more quickly by seeing the craft-in-question demonstrated in person.
This particular book on Inkle Weaving has been written with such skill, and crystal clear instructions and illustrations that I was able to design and complete a very complicated design pattern on my first effort! A friend, (Lady Merrsger of Clan CaerLonn) lent me her copy and loom so that I could see whether I wanted to continue with this type of weaving. Especially since it's my first experience with weaving. As my husband (Lord Aragon) says, "This is your new addiction, I see."
Matter of fact, since he's a wood-worker, I had him make me both the table-top & floor looms from the patterns included in the book. (Although, I wouldn't recommend this unless you are a wood-worker, yourself.) As Artisan/Merchants within the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism), we used those looms to take orders from our customers last week. And everyone we talked to, demonstrated to, and sold looms to, were shown a copy of this book, and highly encouraged to buy one for themselves at Amazon.com!
Within the SCA, (which is a world-wide Midevial/ Renaissance re-creationist & educational group) we are often challenged to find some kind of trim to sew onto our "garb" which looks authentic within our "time period". The trim created on this type of very simple loom is perfect, and far surpasses the mass-produced stuff available in fabric stores! Ms.

In the beginning, she cites all the features required for an inkle loom. I used this list to search for mine, and have been delighted with the loom I got. She also has great instructions for getting set up, and for weaving.

The only problem I've noticed is that if you follow exactly many of the charts, you will not get the results shown in the samples. Left of the center of the graph is perfect. The right hand side is always off by one. I had to learn this the hard way, and so now, I check that left and right of the center are identical, and then fix the chart before I begin warping my loom.

While other reviewers found the author's writing style "clear," I did not. References go nowhere, instructions are either over- or under-written, etc.; the book is a plethora of mistakes. My biggest complaint is that while technique sequences have numbers, the numbers aren't included in the written instructions. Why have numbers if they aren't going to provide a link to what you're suppose to do! (Then there was the reference to "Chapter 10" when there isn't a Chapter 10 in the book.) I can forgive a few editing errors, but this book has too many of them. The author clearly knows how to weave, she just needs an editor/co-author who knows how to write clearly and effectively.

For me this book covers everything you want to know to get started, to keep going, advanced topics and more. There are instructions on how to make your own loom, how to make your heddles, what the heddles are for(big reason for them really) and more. You will learn just about everything from this book.

I'm new to the inkle loom and weaving in general. This book was recommended to me and I have found it to be thorough, easy to follow, and filled with ideas. If you are new to the Inkle I would highly recommend this book.

The only thing I wish there was more of is different inkle projects that can be made on the loom.

This book was recommended to me by experienced weavers as the best for inkle weaving. It is an excellent book. Easy to read with plenty of pictures. I am a beginner at this craft and she has answered most of my questions. Questions like, "How do I use this pattern with my loom?" and she answered that quite well. She also showed how to draft your own patterns. There is more there than I currently understand, so it will help me "grow" my skills as I do some trial (and probably error!)

The book is a relatively good basic. I wish I had known that it was mostly about card weaving rather than using it as an inkl loom.

This book goes into all aspects of inkle weaving, from making your own loom to finished products made from your "own creation." Detailed and easy to follow. Lots of good illustrations to refer to. Great book on the specific subject.
