I wove this alpaca scarf on 4 shafts using color-and-weave effects. It’s lightly brushed and amazingly soft. To learn more about how I wove this scarf and to view other color-and-weave samples, click here.
I was inspired to weave the patterned double weave fabric when I learned that you can design blocks that don’t have to have clear or sharp outlines. To read more about how I wove this fabric and another double weave project, click here. To view the vest that was made from this fabric click here.
Here is another color-and-weave scarf I wove. I started with a profile draft that was generated by my weaving program into a diamond twill pattern. I wrote about it in this post.
I’m a member of the Fine Threads Study Group at Complex Weavers. My study for this year was Shadow Weave, and I designed this pattern with my weaving software using parallel threading and treadling to weave on my 16 shaft treadle loom. I used 20/2 cotton sett at 36 e.p.i. and approximately the same p.p.i. to weave a finished fabric of 17″ x 90″ which was then cut into 37 swatches and exchanged with other members of my group.
I was inspired by Filet Crochet to design and weave this curtain. For details on how I wove it click here.
