Top Ten Blankets and Throw on Four Shafts eBook Printed Copy Weaving Book
22 pgs. (paper, color)
Don’t be afraid of weaving blankets!
They may be large, take more yarn and need wider looms than most fabrics, but blankets can be just as quick and easy to weave as a scarf or table runner. The weaving projects featured in this printed eBook are beautiful without being complicated. You do not need more skill to weave a blanket than weaving a scarf. Beginner weavers will enjoy the challenge of weaving larger fabrics while seasoned weavers will love the variety of weaving patterns offered.
Enjoy these great advantages to weaving these blankets:
Playing with weave structures—learn how to weave a blanket in plain weave, waffle weave, Atwater-Bronson lace, huck lace, twill, and more using only four shafts—you won’t need more than four shafts for any of these projects so you can weave them on almost every floor loom using thick yarns—blankets are mostly woven in thick yarns, which means fewer ends per inch to thread and fewer picks per inch to make.
Discovering color—the large fabric will give you the opportunity to really explore and play with color showcasing your work—blankets are a great way to show off what you’ve learned plus also add color to any room they live in.
Keeping warm—you will get great joy from wrapping yourself up in a handwoven blanket and so will your family.
Our founder Halcyon Blake and Halcyon Yarn have several projects featured and we'd be delighted to help you choose yarns for any of these classics.
