Plain Weave - 60 Patterns for Mastering the Basic Technique

Plain Weave - 60 Patterns for Mastering the Basic Technique


 The latest from Tina Ignell: a comprehensive study of 2-shaft stripes, plaids, color effects, and so much more.

Renowned weaving expert Tina Ignell (editor VAV magazine, Favorite Scandinavian Projects to Weave, Favorite Rag Rugs, Simple Weaves) turns her attention to the deceptively simple and endlessly adaptable category of plain weaves, in this exhaustive overview of techniques, sample projects, and inspirational possibilities.

Combine a wide variety of materials, setts, beats, and other effects with just two shafts—though sometimes four is preferred for the sake of space—and you'll be astounded by the technical complexity, visual and textural effects, and stunning pattern styles you can achieve.

  • Project photographs as close to “actual size” as possible, to allow a true-to-life look at pattern structure and threading

  • Descriptions, instructions, and tips for dyeing, finishing, specialty techniques—everything necessary to master plain weave from start to finish

  • Variations including open rep with weft showing, using a fan reed, weaving in pleats and other textures, ikat and other patterned dyeing techniques, knotted paper yarn, and more
