Handwoven, January/February 2017 Digital Edition
In this issue of Handwoven focused on fancy fibers, you’ll find 11 brilliant handweaving patterns that shimmer and shine. Tom Knisely tells you how he approaches fashion yarns and shares his project for a huck lace scarf like no other, while Deborah Rutherford takes overshot to the next level by using a variegated yarn in her name draft scarf. Liz Moncrief brings bamboo into the kitchen with her satin bamboo towels.
Also in this issue, Deb Essen will teach you how to turn a draft to get the most out of your precious yarn while Madelyn gives an in-depth explanation of the weave structure bumberet in the latest edition of The Draft. In the Idea Gallery, Judith Shangold explains how she designs garments on narrow looms—including rigid-heddle looms. In the Yarn Lab, Elisabeth Hill takes on another type of precious yarn—linen—and shows us how versatile Louet’s Euroflax really is.
Whether you’ve got a stash of luxury and fashion yarns you love but don’t know what to do with, or you’re looking for a reason to play with some new yarns, the January/February issue of Handwoven has something for you.
