Weave-It Afghan/Wall hanging from vintage pattern

RickeScott's picture

Update: I added a pic of the original design from the vintage pattern book. Thanks for all of the positive comments!!!

I finished this Saturday morning, my last day of a 15 day stay in Patara. I found the basic pattern from a 1940's Weave-It pattern book, but made some changes. Used 5 sizes of looms, 2x2, 2x4, 4x4, 4x6 and 2x6. I don't claim that it is "art", but I'm going to hang it on the wall of our entry hall. Dimensions are 3'x5'. Mostly made of wool. The green border is a 50/50 blend.

Love it! It has a sort of Art Deco feel to it. You should definitely hang this in a prominent place.

Looks outstanding Ricke.

On the technical side, how did you weave the piece? From my view, could be tapestry joins, crochet or sewn. Or did you tie in the warps in section to make it all tabby? Or some other technique by hand?

No matter what you did, I like the colors and the mix.

I used 5 sizes of Weave-It looms. All of the pieces are whip-stitched together.

Impressive, indeed. I get an Art Deco/Bauhaus feeling, too. Keep up the good work. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

I just read "Loving Frank" so I see his sort of patterning going on there. As he was considered genius ... That really is a beautiful piece. Enjoy.
