By Clotilde Barrett and Annette Lamb. Don't have a wide loom? That's okay--most of the designs in this book require a 15" weaving width or less. The projects are functional, with lots placemats and runners, as well as scarves and shawls. The contents are broken into four chapters:
- 1--four-harness double weave designs based on overshot drafts
- 2--traditional overshot using a supplementary weft
- 3--fabrics of various structures that work well for scarves
- 4--a fabric woven with rag weft and an overshot sampler with 21 different treadling sequences
Most of the instructions are "outlines" with general information given but leaving it up to the weaver to decide the number of repeats, final dimensions, number of placemats to be woven, etc. In the first section, the actual treadling sequences are very long. The authors provide the beginning of the sequence as an example and then allow you to construct the remaining treadling following their instructions.
The yarns used are generally available cottons. Some reference UKI perle cotton numbers so you can recreate the color combination exactly if you want to. These are 4-harness structures. Treadling options for either six or 8 treadles are given for some projects.
