I designed a 16-shaft networked draft for double weave and wove this double weave shawl using Tencel for warp and weft. The pattern looks like mosaic when viewed from a distance. This shawl received “The Kathryn Wellman Memorial Award” for imaginative weaving incorporating design, color and texture at the 2014 Philadelphia Guild of Handweavers “Celebration of Fibers” exhibit.
I designed this double weave table runner by starting with a 4-block profile draft first and wove it on 16 shafts. I posted drafts and notes about how I wove it here at this link.
These placemats are also a double weave project that I designed as a 2-block profile draft first and wove it on 8 shafts. Drafts and notes about how I wove them are at the same link as the table runner.
I wove this fancy Lace & Spot Weave Variation piece on 15 shafts using a combination of warp and weft floats on a plain weave background. For more photos and drafts of my work related to this piece click here.
I designed these two Interleaved Echo Weave scarves by interleaving two non-parallel networked threadings on 16 shafts. If you would like to know more about interleaving click on my post, “Interleaved Echo Weave.”
I designed and wove a few yards of a woolen fabric in a shadow weave pattern and made a pullover from it. For drafts, notes, and more photos about this fabric and other shadow weave samples, click here.
