Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Inkle weaving uses a simple loom to create warp-faced, plain-weave bands, which often become bracelets, belts, or trim for garments. Designs for inkles range from simple two-color stripes to multicolored, complex designs with a Scandinavian or Native American feel. In this collection, Dixon (The Handweaver's Pattern Directory) introduces weavers to the possibilities of inkle weaving, following the process from warp and weft selection to dressing the inkle loom to the weaving itself. Warping drafts and photographs of woven samples are included for each design; pattern charts are also included when needed. VERDICT Small, inexpensive looms are increasing in popularity among weavers, especially novices to the craft. The most recent inkle weaving books were published in the early 1980s. This is a much-needed update.

    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.
