I love the red and white and waffle weave is one of my favorite 'magic' weaves. Beautiful!
Thanks for your kind words. Yes, waffle weave really is magic! I always need to remind myself to make the warp much wider than the finished project. This spa cloth was 10" wide on the loom and about 7.5" wide after it was washed and dried. It is soooo thick and soft!
Very nice. Will you post the draft?
Thanks, ingamarie. I've added the draft that I used to do the waffle weave on a rigid heddle loom with 4 heddles (threaded to create the equivalent of a 5-shaft loom) and also noted a draft on the handweaving.net site that weavers with regular 5-shaft table or floor looms can use. It's not difficult at all on any type of loom, and the results are really nice.
I have never seen instructions on how you warp the quad...even on your website. Can't wait to see them. This project is gorgeous.
I didn't realize this was done on 4 heddle RH loom, I had assumed a regular 2 heddle RH. which is why I was curious about how you had done it!
I would love to see a video with you weaving this is RH loom. Also would enjoy looking at the draft if you post it. I have 2 heddles now in 10 dent H.
Based on your suggestion, sherryk, a video is now in the works. Thanks! I've sent you a PM with more information about the draft.
this is interesting
i will try this
spread the word
