This webpage shows how to make a simple sampler of sprang netting, derived from instructions found at Regia Anglorum's website.
PreparationSprang netting is constructed on a set of two parallel beams: a "near" beam just in front of the weaver, and a "far" beam. Pencil-thin dowels serve well as beams for a small sprang project, though a large one might need thicker dowels.
Both beams are attached by cords to a rigid frame. The cords fastening the near beam need to be adjustable so the tension can be loosened as the twining nears completion.
You will need ten knitting needles (size 4 to 6), plus a crochet hook or another knitting needle.
A small project can use 30 to 40 feet of yarn or cord. Prepare for warping by winding this yarn on a shuttle. (A medium-weight yarn is best to begin with. Move on to lighter weight fibers after you master the technique.)
