The Magic of Double Weave
Edited by: Madelyn van der Hoogt and Alexis Xenakis
Double Weave is the fifth in the series of Best of Weaver's books: collections of treasured articles from almost twenty inspiring years of Weaver's magazine and Prairie Wool Companion. This volume explores the amazing feats that can be done by weaving two layers of fabric on the loom - the technique that weavers know as double weave.
This collection of beautiful handwoven projects in double weave includes everything you need to know to:
- design and weave two layers of cloth
- stitch two layers together for backed or two-faced fabrics
- connect two layers at one edge for a fabric double the width of the loom
- create block designs by exchanging differently colored layers
- use overshot patterns as the basis for double-weave designs
- create dimensional, decorated fabrics by stuffing pockets, embellishing surfaces, cutting layers, and more.
Much of the drafting and designing information in this book is available nowhere else! Read the theory, weave the projects, and you'll be ready to design your own. Double Weave brings you the best in weaving: seeing a glorious cloth grow under your fingers as you marvel at the mystery of how it works.
