Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Handweaver's Pattern Directory offers details on how to thread and weave more than 600 designs on four-shaft looms. Each design is shown as a weaving draft and is accompanied by a color photograph of the weave structure. A new classic tool for the four-shaft weaver. Inkle weaving is a warp-faced weave most commonly seen in woven straps, such as for cameras or guitars. In the follow-up volume, Dixon shows the variety of patterns available on the inkle loom, how to weave them, and possible uses.

I was not happy with this book.  While there are many patterns in the book, they are all just variations of color warping with some basic pick up.  I wish I could return the book for a refund but I cannot as I purchased the nook version.
