This reversible table runner, designed by Miriam Vergara, is inspired by the color and pattern of the poison dart frog. Two contrasting shades of Array Wool are woven in an overshot variation that is completely weft-faced. The tabby and pattern wefts are so densely packed that the “spots” become three-dimensional.
Weave two of our favorite Duet patterns with just three cones of yarn: The Minimalist Scarf by Mariah Gaar and Citrus Towels by Emma Rhodes. The Citrus Towels is a straight-forward, beginner-friendly project with a striped warp and solid color weft. The Minimalist Scarf incorporates a unique skip-dent detail when sleying the reed and utilizes two shuttles in some areas of the pattern.
Weavers make gamps to try out different colors, weaving structures, and treadling patterns. This simple color gamp uses two colors to explore basic color theory, contrast, and value, as well as how colors mix on the loom. By using all the values from two colors of Array, the colors fade from dark to light and back again with almost no break. The result can be hung on the wall as inspiration or used flat in your home.
These wool pillow shams are woven in two blocks of Monk’s Belt. The blocks vary from edge to edge in the threading, gradating across the fabric like ripples in the water. Two colors of Array Wool are held together and used as the pattern weft, creating texture and tonality that pops against the solid color plain weave (tabby) base.
This warm and cozy scarf is woven on a rosepath (extended point twill) threading with two alternating stripes of color in the warp. Variations of 2/2 twill and plain weave in the treadling create a striking elongated zig zag pattern and slightly longer warp floats which enhance the softness of the alpaca yarn.
This cheerful shawl, woven with Beam Organic Cotton, utilizes a striped warp and a twill treadling sequence to weave an allover floral pattern resembling tulips. The three chosen colors accentuate each row of flowers—green creates the leaves, which wrap around blue petals, all placed on a neutral background.
