Jane Patrick and Stephanie Flynn Sokolov introduce weavers to a broad sampling of weaving techniques and exploring various ways of creating cloth on a rigid heddle loom in their new book Woven Scarves.

 

Scarves are a great way for new and seasoned weavers alike to practice and explore weaving techniques. With Woven Scarves, you'll learn in highly approachable ways how to create lovely scarves that are creative, classic, and fun to make and wear.

 

Woven Scarves offers a collection of 26 scarves and variations that will range in complexity for all skill levels.

 

The scarves featured in Woven Scarves are worked using knitting yarns. Thus projects work up quickly and are made from readily available yarns. Using various weave structures, color, yarn combinations, and techniques such as felting and embellishment, the authors walk you through the basics to your own jumping off point for personal exploration and creation in weaving.

    Spacer 15x15 pixels

Woven Scarves arranged by areas of exploration. Each chapter begins with an explanation of a particular technique: plain weave; using yarn to its best advantage; various weave structures; altering the surface of woven fabric. Examples, ideas, and tips are given, followed by scarves with complete instructions that demonstrate the techniques. Throughout the book the authors provide project variations that show what happens when other yarns or colors are used with the same technique.

 

Woven Scarves will support weavers in their desire for appropriate patterns, better skills, and a deeper understanding of fibers, types of weave techniques, and all the varieties of fabrics that are possible—even to beginners. This book is primarily for weavers using rigid heddle loom (though drafts are provided where appropriate for shaft-loom weavers).

Inspired me Review by Grasshopper
Rating

Being brand new (one month) I found it had much information to get me off to a good start .

My "lunch with ladies" scarf was a hit ! This is my first book, so the price was less important than the content.

I've spent more on patterns and "how to's" that I never started in other mediums.

Fun and Creative Designs for Rigid Heddle Weavers Review by Lois
Rating

Jane Patrick and Stephanie Flynn Sokolov's new book Woven Scarves has a lot of creative, hip scarves in it. The scarves were designed for beginning Rigid Heddle weavers and advanced beginning weavers who have warped their loom several times and woven several projects. The beauty of the Rigid Heddle loom is in it's simplicity and the fact that you can get a warp on quickly and weave something beautiful right away.
The writing is clear and easy to understand. The instructions and photos make it easy to follow various techniques including twisting fringe with a fringe twister, making pom poms for the Bobble Scarf, weaving with a spaced bobble yarn to create random flowers,tying a knotted fringe, detailed instructions and photos for finger controlled weaves including Leno, Spanish Lace, Ghiordes Knots, and Picked Up Loops, vertical ladder hemstitching, and a lovely eyelet scarf. Many of the scarves have photos of the weaving on the loom so you can see the spacing of the weaving and many show variations that you could weave.
Instructions are included for direct peg warping, using a warping board to measure your yarn, how to calculate how much yarn is needed for your project. I especially like that there is detailed information about the yarns used and I find the actual size photos of the yarns used in each project shown wrapped around a card. It makes it simple to substitute a different yarn.
I am inspired to weave many of the projects in this book.
Thank you Jane and Stephanie for your creativity!

Interesting for a new weaver, but e-book grossly overpriced. Review by Caroline
Rating

For a new weaver, this is an interesting sampler collection, and with this book and the free Interweave how to weave instructions, you will be up and creating in no time. This represents good value for money when compared to other new weaver instruction books. It has an appendix section on direct warping and yarn estimation, using a warping board and hemstitching to finish off. There are different fulling and felting techniques, and the new weaver will work with different weight yarns and fancy yarns.
However, for an experienced weaver, there is very little to offer that I have not seen in other Interweave books and magazines. It rather resembles a compilation and I know that the authors are well respected weavers in their own right, so was disappointed when seeing there were only 3 or 4 interesting patterns out of 26. The rest are rather ho-hum. I bought this on pre-order when it was put out at 50% off, so cannot complain about the price - you get what you pay for, and its on a par with the regular $10 e-books. Its not worth the full price, either as a download or the print version.
Interweave, your standards are slipping badly! Could do so much better, the excitement has gone.

Cost Review by BeM

Must agree - eBook should be 20 to 30 % less; Yes I know - infrastructure costs, but still, no paper, no printing, no shipping, no staff support...... should be less costly

Minor nitpicks:
says its in stock but still on pre-order?
says it will ship on 1/13/2014 but its still on preorder on 1/19?
