Profusely illustrated with clear and close-up photographs that show nearly 200 examples, including variations on plain weaves, twills, satins, block weaves, color effects, double weaves, and lampas, this manual contains bountiful information for creating a woven project, from the simplest plain weave for beginners to more complex structures for advanced weavers. The variety of materials, textures, and colors explained within, along with complete draw-downs and profile drafts shown next to photos for ease of comparison, make this book an inspiration for creativity and a comprehensive resource for Swedish weaves.
