The Ashford Book of Weaving Patterns

Weaving Patterns for Multi-Shaft Looms

The Ashford Book of Weaving Patterns from Four to Eight Shafts by Elsa Krogh, a Danish weaver and spinner, brings you beautiful weaving patterns using four, six, and eight-shaft looms. 

Using a variety of weaving techniques, Krogh has made beautiful woven garments, such as scarves and shawls, as well as woven accessories for the home, like towels, cushions, placemats, table runners, and many more.

Plenty of the patterns you can find in this book have been sourced from archival material from local museums!
