Color and Weave Twill: Winter 2022 Weave-Along
The weave-alongs are free events hosted three or four times a year at the Yarnworker School and supported by the Yarnworker Patreon community. There is no cost to register while they are active.
The 22 page pattern includes three differently-sized wraps; tips for selecting yarn, sett, color; a single heddle option using the direct warping method and a double heddle version using the indirect warping warping, and weaving instructions.
All funds collected from the sales of this pattern February 2-March 9 were donated to the American and International Red Cross. Thanks to your participation we raised $2,000 for ongoing pandemic relief, domestic natural disaster response, and global emergency assistance.
About This Weave-Along
Twill is beloved for its many creative possibilities and utility. It creates a dense, yet supple, fabric with fabulous drape.
During the winter weave-along, we will tackle a 1/2 twill, adding light and dark yarns to create various color-and-weave effects. You can choose from one or two heddle options and I’ll demonstrate the technique using two different fibers—bouncy Merino or sleek Alpaca—from two of my favorite yarn sellers.
This 3-shed twill is a particularly versatile structure for rigid-heddle weavers and allows us to explore a threading we haven’t tackled in a weave-along before, adding color into the mix. Weave with one color or two to create six different looks in a single garment. Three differently sized options are available in the pattern—a scarflet, scarf, or stole. Once you unlock the method to weaving this structure it is easily adapted to all sort of projects from towels to table runners and beyond!
