Description
Defy Your Loom’s Limits
 
The conventional use for a shaft loom is to weave one layer of flat fabric, no wider than the loom. Doubleweave blows that convention out of the water. Master weaver Jennifer Moore takes a fresh and logical look at this most intriguing of weave structures while exploring its myriad possibilities. Inside you’ll learn how to:
 
  • Weave a fabric twice, thrice, or four times the width of your loom—with no seam
  • Weave a fabric with intersecting layers
  • Change the tie-up to get many structures on one warp
  • Weave stitched, quilted, and piqué fabrics
  • Make color magic with doubleweave blocks
  • Pick up an infinity of patterns  in a variety of structures
  • Weave pockets, a seamless tube, many seamless tubes, a tube within a tube
  • And so much more!
With Doubleweave, you’ll learn to set up your loom efficiently, to manage your shuttles and layer changes, and to finish your work effectively. Best of all, you’ll learn to think in a new way about how doubleweave works on as many shafts as you have so you can apply it in fresh and creative ways. You will be a master of the magic of doubleweave.

Excellent Review by Susan Melvin

I'd never had anything to do with double weave before but this book gave me the confidence to try and have a go at some of the projects and have since started designing my own projects.
