Assignment 3

Read Chapter 5, page 67

Now is the time to turn what you have learned into some bands of your own. In this chapter, there are fourteen pattern drafts that you can use as is or assign colors of your choosing or mix and match parts of this pattern and that pattern. You also might want to create your own pattern from scratch. What to do with tabletwoven bands? Judy Chapman has created a list of things things to do with tabletwoven bands.

Below I offer some comments on some of the patterns. I urge you to weave them all or at least those that you find especially interesting. You could make some small warps just to try out each pattern and then go back and choose something for a finished project; a belt, bag, trim, or???

I wove these two bands using this idea. This black and white band has the colors reversed, the yarn is 10/2 mercerized cotton. Note the fringe; it is made up of four strand braids and cables. 88 (220 cm) x 1 (2.5 cm) plus fringe 94 (235 cm)

The pattern threads in this band are space dyed novelty cotton, the background is 5/2 mercerized cotton. 51 (127.5 cm) x 1.5 (3.75 cm) plus fringe 60 (150 cm)
