Thick n Thin from Best of Weavers Collection

This definitive work begins with basic tips for drafting and weaving unique structures that alternate very thick and very thin fibers in both warp and weft.

This innovative approach is applied to log cabin, summer and winter, crackle, overshot, double weave, and other familiar structures. More than thirty projects-ranging from rugs to fine silk scarves give complete and easy-to-follow instructions.
