Explore and practice weaving techniques for fabulous scarves!
Woven Scarves offers a collection of twenty-six scarves and variations that range in difficulty from advanced beginner to very complex. In highly approachable ways, authors Jane Patrick and Stephanie Flynn Sokolov introduce new weavers to a broad sampling of weaving techniques, exploring various ways of creating cloth on a rigid heddle loom. Weavers learn how to create lovely scarves that are creative, classic, and fun to make and wear. Using various weave structures, color, yarn combinations, and techniques such as felting and embellishment, the authors take you through the basics to a jumping-off point for personal exploration and creation.
Woven Scarves will support new weavers in their desire for appropriate patterns and better skills as well as a deeper understanding of fibers, types of weave techniques, and all the varieties of fabrics that are possible--even to beginners.
