Homework: None

Supplies to bring:  Measuring tape, 2 12” wider rulers or pick up sticks, 12” x 3” piece of light colored cardboard or manila file folder, 400 yards of worsted weight yarn in a solid color that is smooth, strong, non-hairy, and at least 2 ply.

Class Level: Advanced Beginner

Description: By twisting or wrapping your warp yarns you can weave distinctive textures and patterns in your cloth.  Learn to weave lace-like open areas as parts of a design throughout the fabric or as a notable edge treatment.  You’ll learn how to make leno, brooks bouquet, and other fancy patterns. If you’ve been looking for ways to add more interest to your weaving, these techniques will get you there.  You too can create cloth that is visually stunning.
