This new proposal for BEGINNER backstrap weavers is used as the ''stepping stone'' to the intermediate level double weave tutorial.
It is a double-woven narrow band using only one weft and is a very good weave for making belts or straps for guitars, shoulder bags etc.
The INTERMEDIATE level tutorial combines double weave with plain weave and uses two wefts and, having a good understanding of this one-weft method, will prepare you well for the next level.
There is an introduction to the pattern chart for this weave with lessons on how to read the chart and a link to a site that Caroline has provided where you can print your own blank charts and make your own designs.
We start out with simple shapes so that you can concentrate on learning the double weave technique without having to struggle with counting pattern squares (or in this case diamonds) to form more complex designs.
I advise you to work your way through the first two beginner tutorials as well as the instructions for basic backstrap weaving in my WeaveZine article weavezine.com/content/backstrap-basics before attempting this one.
