You can purchase a set of RHWP - Rigid Heddle Warping Pegs if you wish to use your loom in this way.  There are 14 pegs included in the set, this will allow you to choose a variety of warp lengths. 

Some benefits of indirect warping are the flexibility to use one thread of one color, it saves space, even warp lengths, better tension control.
