Double Weave Shawl – Intermediate/Advanced Weaving

September 21, 2015 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Join Kara on Mondays, September 21 & 28 from 10am-2pm. $95 plus materials.

The wonderful world of Double Weave has finally arrived at Compatto! Have you ever wanted to weave wider than your 20” loom will allow? Well now you can! Using a second heddle, you can weave twice the width of your warp. Learn the double weave technique for the rigid heddle loom while making a beautiful fall wrap. This is a fun and easy introduction to double weave and opens the door to more intricate pattern possibilities. You will need the second heddle attachment to your loom and a second reed. Beautiful yarns for a drapey, lightweight shawl include SweetGeorgia Merino Silk Fine, Blue Sky Alpaca Silk, and Lang Asia. Limited class size, so please sign up early.


Advance preparation may be required, depending on the class topic. Details will be provided at least one week in advance or upon sign-up. Each weekly class session includes two hours of hands-on instruction, or more if needed and our time allows (it almost always does!). Yarn for our classes must come from Compatto Yarn Salon, and we are always happy to help you choose the best yarn for your class or project. Classes must have at least three participants in order to run. If you have questions about this or any other class, please give us a call at 310-453-2130.
