my favorite weave structures in this book You may want to weave the projects as Michaels Discovery (The Devaneys given or use them for for your own colors and yarns A dozen of the fabrics are I purchased multiples of this book toive as ifts to my weaving friends and am book to ive as Life Changing Smiles gifts to my weaving friends and amlad I did This is a very straightforward collection of useful linen designs with reat pictures and instructions but not so comprehensive to be overwhelming to someone who is relatively new to weaving Speaking as someone in that position this was uite refreshing Light and thin enough to pack in a day satchel this book can o anywhere with you and provide inspiration for your own designs and doesn t take up much room in a weaving caddy either Very pleased Love the pictures and ideas Even a novice could follow the detailed instructions It is very beautifully done I didn t think I d be excited to weave towels but I have a whole new respect for how color can make something simple into something awesome Can t wait to try some of these I love the narrative in this book but if you were pulled in by the teaching line there isn t actually much explanation as to how different weave structures work just threading charts There are interesting history tidbits to o with each different pattern The projects in the book are not explained There are not enough details to make these trouble free unless you are above intermediate skills The lack information looks like it was just copied and pasted from Pinterest There are several help sites for the book non of them hosted by this author I returned my book.
