Big Weaving on a Small Loom

A Contemporary Guide to Creating Inspired Larger Pieces

Fiona Daly

Description

This comprehensive guide to weaving big on your frame loom enables you to maximize your little loom to make large projects. Weave long warps up to 2 metres on a basic frame loom.

Fiona Daly guides you through all you need to know from dressing the loom, how to weave, and extending the warp, to a variety of patterned weave structures and highly textured techniques. These include waffle weave; extra-weft floats and tassels; leno/gauze weave; as well as classic weave structures such as houndstooth, check and log cabin.

Project patterns for eight contemporary, big projects include an oversized scarf, a mesh shopping bag, a large wall hanging, a bath mat and textured cushions. Projects are designed using techniques explained in the book, incorporating beautiful, natural materials. Fiona stresses the use of sustainably sourced and native materials, including tips on how to find your local, sustainable yarn producers as well as repurposing existing yarns from second-hand garments and charity shops.
