Networked Double Weave Wall Hanging

Weaving has been a comfort to me during these worrisome times.  To keep my mind from wandering, I decided to design and weave something intricate that would keep me focused.  It took me quite a while to come up with a design I liked for a networked double weave wall hanging.  The final design turned out to have over 1,000 warp ends, and it kept me happily occupied as I was weaving it on my 16- shaft treadle loom.

Here’s how it turned out:

These are the 20/2 cotton yarns I used and the warp that was long enough to weave two wall hangings:

The partial draft below shows the order of the colored threads and how they interlace with each other.  I have written several posts about different types of double weave, including networked double weave, that have more detailed notes and drafts if anyone is interested to learn more.

Here’s another networked double weave wall hanging I designed and wove a few years ago:

I wish for all the weavers to keep on weaving, and for everyone to be safe.

See you next time!
