Inkle weaving is my passion. I love to play with color and pattern combinations.
Not everyone enjoys the color selection process as much as I do.
If you are one of those people, this pack is for you!
The color and design pack includes the following items:
- Four skeins of cotton yarn in a tried and true color combination selected by me (shown in photo #2)
- A grid page showing 9 pattern drafts for you to choose from using the enclosed colors (sample shown in photo #3)
The Omega Sinfonia yarn is a sport weight mercerized cotton and the one that I use most often for
my straps, belts, etc. It works up at around 40 warps per inch, although this will vary from weaver to weaver.
Included in this pack are the following colors : Black, True Red, Mandarin Orange and Golden Yellow.
Each skein is 218 yards for a total of 872 yards. You will be able to make several bands using 2, 3 or 4 of the colors in different combinations. It can be used for both warp and weft.
Use the grid paper to create more designs. You can create variations on the ones I've provided or make up your own using mine as inspiration.
Patterns are for 1" wide bands which can be used for belts, instrument straps, hatbands, key fobs, lanyards, dog collars & leashes, purse straps and much more. To see a list of suggestions, visit my blog here: http://www.aspinnerweaver.blogspot.com/p/uses-for-woven-band.html
The last two photos show examples of 1" bands I've woven and may inspire more ideas.
Watch for my full-length e-book coming in early 2018..
"In Celebration of Plain Weave: Color & Design Inspiration for Inkle Weavers"
It will be loaded with color and design tips to help you create beautiful bands in plain weave AND lots of patterns for you to copy!
