It’s easy to weave straight lines and grids on a loom; curves and circles take a bit more finesse, but they are oh-so-fun to weave. Given that, we decided to dedicate our November/December 2019 issue of Handwoven to weaving circles and curves. This issue features circles woven in lace, shadow weave, twill, M’s and O’s, and more. There’s also a Möbius scarf for those who wants to wear circles as well as weave them. 

Also in this issue, Tom Knisely explores the circle of life with green burials and ponders weaving his own shroud while Sharon Airhart writes an Endnotes essay about circling back to weaving after years away. Also in this issue: velvet weaving in Venice, warping tips and tricks, and the design possibilities of deflected doubleweave.
