The Handweaver’s Pattern Directory | Anne Dixon

The Handweaver’s Pattern Directory

The Handweavers Pattern Directory offers a comprehensive introduction to the tools, equipment, fibres, and yarns used with four-shaft looms, this reference features patterns for 600 different weaves, including twill, zigzag, diamond, herringbone, and block. Colour photographs and large-scale drawings allow weavers to closely examine the details, and the compact size and lay-flat binding is convenient for keeping near the loom. This handbook is essential for all four-shaft weavers, this manual includes weaving basics, specialized projects organized by degree of difficulty, finishing techniques, resources, and a glossary of terms.

Like Marguerite Porter Davison’s seminal book A Handweaver’s Pattern Directory, this pattern book is full of 4-shaft drafts. But this volume features computer-generated drafts with colour images of the fabrics.
