The Weaver's Book of 8-Shaft Patterns is the ultimate pattern swap: some 250 readers of Handwoven magazine, dedicated and skillful weavers all, created samples and drafts to share in these pages. The result is more than 25 different types of threadings explored and nearly 900 fabric samples with their drafts. Well known weaves such as twill and twill-based, tied-unit, and lace weaves are included, as well as less common ones such as diversified plain weave and pique. If you're new to multishaft weaving, you'll find a whole new world of possibilities; if you're a seasoned weaver, you'll see new "what ifs" to explore on every page.
