Creative Treadling with Overshot: Explorations in Weave Structure & 36 Projects (Paperback)
Step out of the weaving comfort zone and experiment with something new Weave structures often have specific threading and treadling patterns that are unique to that particular weave structure and not shared with others. This book takes you out of the traditional method of weaving overshot patterns by using different treadling techniques. This will include weaving overshot patterns as Summer/Winter, Italian manner, starburst, crackle, and petit point just to name a few. The basic image is maintained in each example but the design takes on a whole new look Each chapter walks you through the setup for each method and includes projects with complete drafts and instructions so it's easy to start weaving and watch the magic happen Try the patterns for scarves, table runners, shawls, pillows and even some upholstered pieces. Once you've tried a few projects, you'll be able to apply what you've learned to any piece you desire.
