Notes: 

Just playing around with turned krokbragd techniques and came up with the heart design. If I were to do this over again, I'd either get rid of the caramel colored stripes or I'd make them thicker. When I showed the finished inkle around at work I had enough people interested in it that I decided to turn it into a lanyard (we have to wear id cards) and donate it to the annual holiday silent auction.

Pretty and Interesting

Have been intrigued by this technique and krokbragd is on my list of 'to dos' after reading the Helen Dixon book on inkle weaving and now seeing your work ...thanks for sharing.

I'm really enjoying the technique.  I'm using a combination of the instructions from Anne Dixon's book, The Weaver's Inkle Pattern Directory: 400 Warp-Faced Weaves and this website: http://www.yarnscape.co.uk/2009/12/95-mo....
