The preferred method is to take each tail in your needle and stitch them through the back side of some of the yarn. Then you remove the needle and trim the ends. Tying a knot secures your weaving from falling apart. Once all of your warp strands are tied in knots, you can gently pull it off the bottom pegs. Tuck the top strands back behind your weaving as you did with the rest of the messy strands.
Using more warp yarn, tie a knot in one end, and stitch through each knotted strand and up and over your dowel rod, copper pipe, driftwood, etc. I have these on hand, so I used them, but dowel rods are much cheaper.

Edited with A Beautiful Mess actions. I really want to learn how to macrame this summer, as well as improve my sewing. I definitely see myself giving this a whirl in the near future. Thanks for sharing!! This is amazing and perfectly-timed for me too as only this morning I was thinking that I wanted to have a go at weaving.
Thank you so much!
Learning the loom
I love how informational this post was! Thanks for being so detailed and having so many great pictures! This is beautiful! My grandfather was really into weaving rugs and wall hangings back in the day, and they were so amazing. I was interested in learning the braided technique and just how to fine tune my weavings a bit in general.
This is perfect. Thanks Rachel!

What a great post! A video for this would be awesome!!!
I learn better when I can follow someone doing it. I love to weave a rug! Thanks for sharing. Giveaway on my blog! I took a day class last year and learned to weave using a square. It was sooo much fun. And fast. I love how you can make your own wall hangings with it and decorate your home with your hobby.
I taught myself how to weave after being so inspired by boucherouite rugs. I even use the same loom! Thank you for breaking down the process. You make it sound so feasible I might have to try this. Would make a great gift and easy decor for our bedroom! I gasped when I saw this post. Thank you thank you!
I wanted to thank you , as a Fiber artist, for sharing such good fiberful tutorials on your blog. I appreciate how you share and inspire people into using more handmade methods to decorate or whatever else. When your weaving a new row, make sure your warp thread is Not parallel to your already woven section. It should make a triangle ending at least two inches above your already woven section, then be pushed down.
This helps ease the distance with all the over and under, if your triangle is too small your sides will start to pull in. Oh and wash! Thank you Rachel!!! Lemme just say you guys are intense with your instructions on everything and I love it. Keep up the fabulous work ABM team.
Weaving in India: Types and Patterns
Congrats to all your success now and in the future. I love the look of woven art. I did one when I was a kid for my Mom and really liked it but man it was ugly. Excited to try a more sophisticated one! Thank you! How I learnt to weave at school was with a piece of cardboard with large zig zags cut at both of the short ends. This was much easier to make and safer for children to learn too.
This is fantastic! Thanks so much for putting this post together. This will definitely help to push me forward in creating new ones! It actually looks easier than I would have thought.
