Season 3 Episode 7 - Double Width, Double Layers
This episode is all about simple double weave on 4 harnesses…. so be prepared to have TWICE as much FUN 🙂
If you’re a weaver with a narrow loom dreaming of making cloth that is wider or if you’re a weaver with a wide loom wanting to make cloth that is gigantic….this one’s for you.
This is a double width primer:
-Where we learn to create cloth that is twice the width of the warp.
-We look at designing double weave.
-We need to double our ends per inch.
-We can change our layers.
-We can change the side of the join to create a different graphic.
-With the two ideas above, we can create 3 completely different graphics with one warp.
-We discuss how to make a nice join and more importantly, how to clean up the join if you’re not happy with it 🙂
-And on a different warp we learn how to create tubes and two layers.
As always have fun and,
