A Weaver's Book of 8-Shaft Patterns
Edited by Carol Strickler; 1991; 240 pages. Newly re-printed!
This book is a great pattern book compiled from patterns sent in by the Friends of Handwoven. Variations on twills, complex overshot, crackle, lace and huck, double weave and shadow weave all abound in this satisfying collection of complete weaving drafts in the style of the classic 4-harness collection of Marguerite Davison. For those moments to study something new are diversified plain weaves, extended twills, unit weaves, piquet multiple tabby, and more.
