EVA STOSSEL'S WEAVING BLOG

Shadow Weave #2

I like using a profile draft when I design shadow weave patterns.  You can read more about ‘Shadow Weave and Log Cabin’ in ‘My Articles’.  Below is a close-up of a scarf I wove using 5/2 pearl cotton at 16 e.p.i.  The profile draft and weaving draft are below that.  Because the weave structure of Shadow weave is mostly plain weave the fabric was a little stiff when I cut it off the loom, but after finishing by washing and ironing it softened.
