Yael Falk of Yoola Design calls her technique ISK (invisible spool knitting) although she also refers to it as wire crochet. The loops are created with the help of a fine crochet hook. Whatever it is called, the method created even stitches with the help of plastic looms.  Yael has introduced two much larger looms to create mandalas for home decor!  I love effect created by the different colored wires. You could even try wiring small beads for unique designs.

The XXL Medium loom and its companion tutorial are both offered for this giveaway!  BTW all readers are offered a special 15% discount :   BGYOOLA15.

The tutorial covers how and when to decrease, making large stitches, as well as how to change wire colors. 

Mandala pictures aren't the only things you can make with the larger looms.  This bowl was created by Ruth Kraicer :

No matter what loom you use, the technique like yarn crochet, knitting and other forms of repetitive crafts is particularly soothing to do.  However, if you are new to it, it will take some practice.  Start with larger hooks - say 2 mm and you can work yourself down to 0.6, 0.75 and 1.0 mm hook sizes.  The larger hooks will help you catch the wire. I can now work with the 0.6 mm fairly fast but I still like the 1.0 mm hook size.

Her shop sells finished jewelry as well as  supplies, tutorials only and kits (combinations of supplies, tools and tutorials).  Another great thing to note! Yael changed her terms of use recently. So you are now allowed to use her exact designs to sell, provided that you credit "YoolaDesign" and include a link to the pattern’s web page at Yooladesign.com or a general link pointing to the site!  Previously, you could only sell variations of her designs. This was my derivative from a while back :

I've also been exploring using the smallest loom for a wire crochet tube.  I created this design using the drawn out tube as a bezel for a large Cloisonne wire work pendant.  I used my favorite TierraCast end caps and Zodiac charm which I received from Tierracast for review awhile ago. You can tell I was in a wire scrolling mood!

In retrospect, I could have omitted the clasp as the necklace is long enough to put over the head!

I could not draw down the tube to the lowest hole in the draw plate.  This tube was created with 28 G wire which is the recommended one for ISK work. Something to experiment for the future - using 30 G wire? (Note, while it is possible to use 26 G wire, it is hard going, so stick with 28 G in general).
