Creative Treadling with Overshot

Explorations in Weave Structure & 36 Projects

Susan Kesler-Simpson


This book takes you out of the traditional method of weaving overshot patterns by using different treadling techniques. This includes weaving overshot patterns as summer / winter, Italian manner, starburst, crackle and petit point, just to name a few. The basic image is maintained in each example but the design takes on a whole new look.

Samples of each of the structures have been woven in the Star of Bethlehem pattern using a consistent colour palette. This allows you to see how one pattern has been affected by the design / treadling changes and to make comparisons and understand the overall process. Projects are given for each example, so it's easy to start weaving and watch the magic happen! Try the weaves for scarves, table runners, shawls, pillows and even some upholstered pieces. You'll be learning as you weave.
