With the key to block weaves in your hand, you can enter the Palace of Original Design. Without that key, you can only look in its windows. You'll learn how to create your own block profile drafts and how to interpret them in different weave structures, from summer and winter to taqueté to warp rep to doubleweave. The projects in this book will help you understand the theory as well as satisfy your weaver's soul by creating spectacular fabric.
