40th Anniversary #12 Bouquet of Hearts PDF

$3.99 Each

From our very own weaving expert, Leslie Ann Bestor, Bouquet of Hearts marks the final installment of our Valley Yarns 40th Anniversary drafts. Worked in Longmeadow, our cotton/microfiber blend, this darling baby blanket is woven using a rigid heddle loom with a 20” weaving width (or more). This blanket consists of two panels woven on the same warp, then separated and seamed together once off the loom.

The decorative hearts are done in a technique called Brooks Bouquet which will be explained in the draft, but is also available in a tutorial here on the WEBS YouTube channel. In order to maximize the lacey effect of the Brooks Bouquet your ppi will be less than your epi. Resist the temptation to pack the weft in the plain weave sections and try to maintain a steady beat throughout the piece. The Longmeadow really blooms when washed and everything will even out beautifully.

Read more about this design on our blog.
