Kelly - Three Heddle Adventures!
Three Heddle Adventures!
Explore 4 shaft patterns on your rigid heddle loom using 3 heddles!
In this comprehensive course, I will help to demistify weaving with 3 heddles.
Instructions are step by step. We out by weaving a twill sampler with 6 variations and finish up with a challenging twill scarf on M and W threading. There are many tips and hints along the way to make this process achievable and fun!
Printable PDFs are available to guide you and give necessary information.
What you will need:
*A rigid heddle loom with at least 8″ weaving width
*3 heddles of the same dent to fit your loom(in the videos I use 7.5 dent heddles)
*A double heddle block
*Clamps for the third heddle (depending on your loom)
*A tapestry needle
*S hooks or similar for weighting the floating selvedges
*Yarn for the sampler - I used an Australian 8ply (light worsted, dk) to warp the sampler. For the weft I used a variety of weights, it’s all about experimenting!
*Yarn for the scarf - I used Moda Vera Bamboo Cotton.
3 x 30g balls for warp and just over 3 x 50g balls for weft.
Information is provided on alternate yarns.
This class is fully closed captioned.
