Free Rug Weaving Patterns: Pattern 1

Boundweave, Slow Weaving but soooo satisfying! By Tom Knisely

Weavers who like weaving (as opposed to counting heddles, drafting, planning, ordering yarn, and warping) will love making a handwoven Scandinavian-style rug in a krokbragd boundweave pattern. Every part of this project goes quickly except the weaving. It's like taking a month for a vacation instead of a weekend – you can savor instead of rush. Many rug weavers have full schedules that leave little time for weaving, so projects that can be completed in little time are ideal. This project is a different way to look at time, because warping the loom for weft-face rugs takes very little time and the weaving is what takes longer. The rug weaving however is what brings the satisfaction.

Indonesian batik and a Swedish technique by Debra Sharpee

The batik fabric that is cut into strips for the weft in this hand-woven rug was dyed with indigo (batik is a dye technique used in many parts of Africa and Asia). When we weave, we are connected to weavers, spinners, and dyers everywhere. The advantage to using a batik fabric for a rag weft is that in batiks, the dye is evenly distributed on both sides of the cloth. Since there is no "wrong" side, you do not have to worry about placing a batik rag weft carefully in the shed. Commercial batiks like the one used in this woven rug pattern are available from quilting and fabric stores.

Getting Started with Warp Rep by Tom Knisley

The word "rep" comes from the Swedish term "rip", which describes the horizontal ridges produced in a cloth with a very closely sett warp and a thick weft. In addition to a delightfully smooth ribbed texture, through the use of color rep can produce a richly patterned cloth on as few as four shafts. This handwoven Scandinavian rug is a great project for teaching a beginner the joys of warp rep.
