Patterned Double Weave Fabric with Detail, cotton, 2011

This fabric is the culmination of my recent studies and experiments in weaving patterned double weave.  To read the complete post about my experience and view drafts and images of other samples too, click here.

Optical Illusion Scarf, merino wool-silk-pearl cotton, 7"x72", 2011

I designed and and wove this scarf with an interesting pattern that seems to fade in and out.  It’s a gift for my husband, and he says it’s his favorite!

Double Weave Coral Scarf, pearl & slub cotton & linen, 9"x65", 2011 (detail shows work in progress on the loom)

I wove two scarves with a similar pattern using the same threading and treadling but with different tie-ups: a double weave tie-up for this scarf and a twill for the other.  Click here to view the weaving drafts, details and notes about both scarves.

Warp Rep Table Runner, 19" x 35", pearl cotton, 2011

I designed this 16-shaft warp rep table runner using parallel threading and treadling.  To learn more about how I wove it and a set of placemats on 4 shafts, click here.

Diversified Plain Weave (variation) Pillows, 15"x15", wool and pearl cotton, 2011

I used a variation of Diversified Plain Weave to design the pattern and weave the fabric for these pillows.  I also wove a series of scarves this way.  For more photos, drafts and notes about these projects, click here.
