Best of Handwoven: Projects in Waffle Weave - eBook Printed Copy Weaving Book
29 pgs. (paper, color)
Madelyn van der Hoogt Editor Emeritus gathers together the cream of waffle-weave projects that have appeared in Handwoven over the last 35 years in this eBook. Waffle weave is wonderfully appropriate for a wide range of fabric types, and the projects in this book run the gamut: bath and kitchen towels, table mats and runners, throws and blankets, tops and jackets. Almost any yarn is suitable for waffle weave, from linens and cottons to soft, fluffy wools.
In addition to the projects, Kathryn Wertenberger Meile, in "Waffle-Weave Handbook,” gives a comprehensive explanation about how waffle weave works plus thirteen different waffle-weave drafts (on four, five, seven, eight, ten, twelve, and sixteen shafts). With this handbook, you can take the yarns and/or color arrangements from any of the projects in the book while shifting the draft to the number of shafts on your loom. Rigid-heddle weavers will especially love discovering how easy it is to do waffle weave on a rigid-heddle loom.
The projects in this eBook include three bath sets of wash cloths and towels (by Sharon Alderman, Karen Tenney, and Margaretha Essen-Hedin), kitchen towels (by Connie Westbrook), table pieces (runners and placemats by Hector Jaeger and placemats and coasters by Joan Torgow), a blanket and throw (by Hector Jaeger and Terry Collard, and a top and two jackets (by Betty Davenport, Teresa Kennard, and Becky Menlove).
If you’ve never woven waffle-weave before, you’re in for a lovely treat. It’s easy to warp and quick to weave, and there is nothing quite like releasing the tension and watching the waffle cells deepen as the threads relax.
This ebook, and all of Halcyon Yarn's ebooks, are printed in full color on acid-free coated stock, saddle-stitched and ready for immediate browsing and convenient posting next to your loom.
