Weaving Draft

The Weaving Draft: How to Read Weaving Patterns

Patterns for weaving are written in a form called a "draft". Weaving drafts are standardized short-hand ways of explaining how to set up a loom to weave a particular pattern. Unfortunately, sometimes it seems more like a confusing barrier than an aid to communication. Most of the confusion comes from the many different ways in which weaving drafts have been written in weaving literature. No format is "right" or "wrong"; they are just a different way of conveying the same information. This free eBook walks you through the different types of weaving drafts and how to read them to achieve successful results when working on loom weaving patterns.

Simple Textures
and Patterns on the Rigid-Heddle Loom

By Jane Patrick

Thinking texture instead of structure is a good way to approach pattern weaving on the rigid-heddle loom. Since there are no shafts to create the weave patterns, you must rely on other tricks! Of course, interesting yarns and colors woven in simple plain weave can be wonderfully effective. But if texture is to be provided by something other than yarn, there are two possibilities: finger-manipulated techniques such as loops, rya knots, soumak, or simple wrapping—or pattern floats created with a pick-up stick. Learn the tricks of inlay weft patterning and weft pile with the free rigid-heddle loom patterns provided in this free eBook.
Huck lace

4-Shaft Huck Lace Towels

By Lynn Tedder

Fine linen produces beautiful cloth. In simple weave patterns, its characteristic crisp hand and simple gleaming elegance serve as a classic foundation for hand-manipulated border and edge treatments. The investment in time is well worth the heirloom-quality results! When you’re adding borders or end finishes to a design, it is important to consider how all the elements interact. If one is visually complex, the others should be plainer. A plain-weave towel can be enhanced by Spanish lace or Italian hemstitching, while very intricate weaving patterns may require simpler treatments. Learn these techniques (and many others) with your Free Weaving Patterns eBook.

Festive Dresser Scarf

By Betsy Blumenthal
