Weave a V-Shawl using Double Weave with Robin Lynde


Workshop Description: The V-Shaped Shawl is a favorite style--due to its unique shape it stays put on the shoulders while covering all of the back. Use double weave and a unique method of weaving a fold to make this shawl with vertical stripes which cross in the back to create a plaid. The shawl is woven in two layers, using two shuttles, up to the point where the layers are joined to create the V. At that point successive pairs of warp threads are cut at the back of the loom and then used as weft. Learn the details of weaving this shawl and explore options to create your own design.


Experience Level: Basic Weaving Experience


Materials Kit: Your choice of 3-color kit, 4-color kit, or 5-color kit


Students Should Have: 4-shaft loom, minimum 18” weaving width. You could use a narrow loom to learn the technique but to make a shawl you probably want 18”. Two shuttles. Optional: Cutting mat for sewing (with the 1” grid).


Recorded Workshop Details: This workshop was recorded exclusively for Lambtown Festival. Students who registered before the festival were invited to attend a webinar with the instructor, in which the instructor answered live questions from students. The recorded workshop is available for purchase now through the end of the year. Students have the opportunity to watch each video multiple times as they work through the techniques or simply soak up the expert advice.
