A comprehensive introduction to the tools, equipment, fibers, and yarns used with four-shaft looms, this reference features patterns for 600 different weaves, including twill, zigzag, diamond, herringbone, and block. Color 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. A handbook that 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.

    Comments about "" Handweaver's Pattern Directory:

    This is an essential reference for any weaver interested in producing woven patterned fabrics. It also contains info on fibers, equipment and directions on following the weaving drafts. The photo examples of each pattern are excellent -- there are close-ups and imaages of the reverse side of the pattern as well. My only complaint: I am a very new weaver, and I needed more explanation as to how the drafts are read. The book assumes that the reader/weaver has more knowledge than I did (of which I had next to none.) Anyway, this is an indispensable book!

      If you want to weave something unique, or a one of a kind design this book can help you do that. I love the fact that the pictures are in color and that they show several different patterns using the same tie- up with different treadling.
