Judith Shangold's designs turn what might seem to be the limitations of this loom into a strength. She pairs simple shapes that reflect the ease of current fashion, and require little cutting and sewing, with the long tradition of ethnic garments created from strips of handwoven fabric. The book offers guidance on he basics of weaving and the minimal hand sewing and knitting techniques used, as well as primers on choosing yarns, designing warps, planning garments, finishing the fabric. This makes Weave Knit Wear a valuable resource that aids in planning and constructing one-of-a-kind woven and woven-and-knit projects for all weavers.

Review:

November 2014 Subtitled `Simply Fabulous Clothing and Accessories for Rigid-Heddle (and Other ) Weavers, this book certainly offers stylish woven clothes. It includes essential skills for weaving, knitting and sewing; a useful section on design; a gallery and resources. There are 27 designs which fall into one of the following categories: Wraps, Pullovers, Jackets, Vests and Accessories. The garments are elegant. Some of the woven designs incorporate knitting or embroidery. I love this book. It is without doubt the best weaving book I have seen. * Karen Platt Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts *
