Rep Weaves: 27 Projects Using New and Classic Patterns by Laila Lundell
Using an ordinary counterbalance loom, this guide teaches beginning weavers how to create an array of projects featuring the warp-faced rep-weave technique, which initially appears very complex but is actually quite simple after learning the basic principles. Detailed descriptions of the weaving drafts are accompanied by step-by-step instructions for their completion, while helpful charts and drawings along with color photos of the finished projects illustrate the processes from start to finish. Projects such as the reversible curtain valance—with a weave-in tabby and weft-faced rep—can be worked up in a combination of colors for completely different looks, and old classic rug patterns may be woven like the original versions or used as a source of inspiration.
