Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With instructions for all sorts of projects, this guidebook introduces a well-rounded foundation in the ancient art of weaving. The 10 chapters of this book present weaving techniques such as plain weave and twill, canvas and spot weaves, monk's belt and honeycomb, rosepath, crackle weave, waffle weave, color effects, M's and O's, and true dräll or block damask. The patterns can all be varied by using different types of yarn; for example, blankets and pillows constructed from wool yarns can be adapted to a fine modern rug when changed to linen. Weavers working alone or in classes will be inspired by the rich illustrations and photographs depicting vibrant projects that will provide many satisfying hours at the loom.
