Overview

This second volume of the Rugmaker’s Handbook series is designed to teach textile explorers of all skill levels to make practical, durable rugs on simple frames using very basic tools. If you have ever wished for a loom to weave rugs, this book will help cure your “loom envy” with over forty techniques to create rugs with patterns and textures that just can’t be reproduced on a loom. Various types of frames are explained including: high-low, flat, pegged, fifth stick, pinned and scroll frames. Unique warping methods allow the creation of rugs with four finished sides, even in freeform shapes. The book is divided into tensioning and non-tensioning methods and techniques worked horizontally and vertically on the warp strands. Learn such oddities as the twisted warp techniques, spider web warp and the cheater’s warp. This is not a “craft” book, but rather a reference book and includes over forty techniques, most of which have never before been published.
