'Echo on the Double: Double Weave on Echo Threadings' At-Home Workshop

Four-color double weave on 16 shafts

Two-color double weave on 8 shafts

Echo threadings -- also known as extended-parallel threadings -- offer limitless possibilities for flowing designs and bold colors. When they are woven as double weave, using two or more colors in the warp and two colors in the weft, the interactions among warp, weft, and pattern provide for striking motifs and surprising color blends. These designs can offer immense rewards for weavers who love color and pattern. For 4, 8, and 16 shafts.

Pattern and Instructions for 4-shaft Deflected Double Weave Scarf in Collapse Fabric




Weave a scarf with two layers joined by a collapse fabric in the middle -- on just 4 shafts! This download gives you detailed instructions on yarns, sett, picks per inch, and finishing, as well as a WIF file plus a full printed drawdown, including tieup, treadling and liftplan. How is it that such a complex-looking pattern can be woven on just 4 shafts? It's the versatility of Deflected Double Weave, which allows for graphic display of colors and can be woven in two layers and then joined into one. Venne Colcolastic yarn is the other secret ingredient: On the loom and before washing, it behaves like any cotton. But immediately upon immersion in warm water and soap, it shrinks up and draws the surrounding yarns in to form an organic-looking texture, adding lots of visual interest to the fabric.

Drawdowns for workshop, 'One Warp, Many Structures: 
An Exploration of Extended Parallel Threading'

 Falling Stars as Echo Weave
Falling Stars as Jin

This is a compilation of 56 WIF files, all of them structures that I designed for the "One Warp, Many Structures" workshop I taught at Convergence 2018 in Reno, NV. There are 10 different threadings in all: 3 for 4-shaft looms, 3 for 8-shaft looms, 3 for 12-shaft looms and 1 for 16-shaft looms. Each threading has WIF files for weaving as Echo, Jin (Turned Taqueté), Rep Weave, Shadow Weave and Double Weave. The aim of the workshop is to learn how to weave all of these structures on one threading, simply by changing the tie up and treadling and weft yarns -- and sometimes re-sleying. This body of work aims to demonstrate the creative potential of extended parallel threadings, providing you with designs you can explore for a long time to come.
