To design this 16-shaft echo weave shawl, I interleaved two networked threadings.  Purple and orange pearl cotton yarns alternate in the warp and the weft is a light green cashmere/silk/merino yarn.  When woven, these three colors mix in different proportions to create a wider range of colors.  There’s more info about this type of weave in my post, “Interleaved Echo Weave.”

Networked Twill Scarf woven on 16 shafts, Tencel & cotton, 2016

This is a scarf I wove on 16 shafts using a variegated colored Tencel warp and a solid colored weft.  I designed a networked draft so that the design looks like it may be a painted warp but it’s not!
