Many times weaving drafts don’t exactly match the dimensions and setts you’ve selected for project designs. Other times positioning structural patterns in warp and/or weft stripes the way you see them in your head can be a struggle. Or maybe you’ve found a threading for the perfect motif, but it is horizontal and you need it vertical. This class will explain/review the planning, arithmetic and drafting techniques needed to solve several common weave-drafting puzzles.
All weavers will benefit from this class!
