Monday January 27, 2020

Two by Two Towels
This new Two by Two towel pattern will guide you step-by-step through the process of weaving mock satin damask pick-up; a weave structure that makes it possible to weave these playful towels on only four shafts.

Design Inspirations
The whimsical rooster appealed to Sarah's love of the challenge of designing for four shafts, so she looked for a pick-up technique that allowed her to create the dog, rooster, squirrel and sheep images.

Mock Satin Damask Pick-Up
The weave structure for all four motifs is mock satin damask pick-up. A twill variation combined with pick-up.
Sarah had woven traditional double weave pick-up (Finnväv) but wanted something that would allow weaving an image on a single layer of cloth. The answer is false, or mock damask pick-up, a twill variation combined with pick-up. The weaving may be slow, but it's fun and gratifying watching the images emerge.
