3 5/8 x 3 5/8 inches
With the Main Yarn, warp the first three layers according to the Zoom Loom's instructions. Cut the yarn, leaving a 6-inch tail. Leaving a 6-inch tail, wrap the Contrast Yarn around the loom 5 times. Cut the yarn. Remove the Contrast Yarn from the loom and thread it onto the weaving needle (included with the Zoom Loom). Weave according to the instructions, starting at corner 1... ...and ending at corner 4.
Weaving in the Ends
At corner 4 (with the yarn still on the weaving needle), bring the needle over the first two warp threads and then follow the same weave pattern as the last row you wove. Thread the other Contrast Yarn tail onto the weaving needle (at Corner 2), and bring it under the first two warp threads. Follow along the pattern of the first row you wove. Thread the Main Yarn tail at Corner 2 onto the weaving needle. Inserting the needle between the first and second pin of the bottom row, weave over the first thread and under the next three, then follow along the pattern of the adjacent warp thread to the end of the row. Thread the other Main Yarn tail (at Corner 1) onto the weaving needle. Weave under the first three threads, then follow along the pattern of the adjacent warp thread to the end of the row. Here's how the coaster looks before you remove it from the loom: Now gently remove the coaster from the loom and trim the ends on the back side. Now make some more!
