#97 Scandinavian Band PDF
The Valley Yarns Scandinavian Band is so much fun, and so quick to weave!. It is warp-faced and so closely sett that you can abandon the beater and the reed entirely and control the width manually. At approximately 10 picks/inch, it doesn’t take long to weave. The uses are many, from a strap for a tote bag, a camera or a luggage strap or even, trim on a garment. Two treadlings are included in this draft; they are very similar.
