Projects in Huck: 13 Lace Projects on Four & Eight Shafts
Huck lace, huck texture, huckaback—whatever you call this weave structure, you can’t help but love what it can do!
Huck is characterized by small groups of threads that can produce either warp floats, weft floats, or plain weave. As simple as that sounds, the designs and textures huck can create are unbelievably varied and complex, even on four shafts. When float blocks alternate with plain-weave blocks (known as “huck texture”), lovely circles appear in the plain-weave blocks as the threads in the float blocks slide together.
Huck is well-suited to almost any fabric use (other than rugs!): in silks for scarves and garments, in linens and cottons for household textiles, and in wools for blankets and shawls. You’ll find huck projects for just about all of these in this book—and you’ll learn to create your own designs.
