Draft Patterns Weaving Techniques

Weaving Techniques || Chevron Weave Video

Finally a video on How to Chevron Weave!!As part of my reaching out to get a better understanding of what you’re looking for, a lot of you asked for more videos.  Which isn’t too surprising, since it’s much easier to follow a process when you can see it in motion.  And actually a few of you asked for a video on the chevron weave specifically, so as I’m trying to focus on making more videos I’m starting with the chevron weave.  And you get to see how to twill weave too, since the twill is a part of the chevron, so bonus!

The video turned out to be 14 minutes, which if that’s too much for you, just skip forward to the parts you are most curious about.  But the reason I let it go so long without a fast-forward is because I explain what to do when you reach the sides since I thought this might help some of you.

Here is a picture of the chevron weave spaced out on the weft threads along with a picture of the sides spaced out, to help give you a better idea of what I’m talking about in the video.  And if you want to see my original post on the chevron weave, the step by step pictures and tutorial are here!

Finally a video on How to Chevron Weave!!Let me know if you found this video helpful or if you have any other techniques that you would like to see in a video.

Happy Weaving!

Kate

    Have you ever done a chevron veritically to make a larger pattern?

      No I haven’t yet, but you read my mind. I was actually thinking about doing the chevron and the herringbone vertically and seeing how they are different!

        I hope you have better results that I have had in the past. I would love to make a scarf with a more modern take on the twill.

          Yes we’ll see, it’s always an experiment 😉
          A scarf would be really nice!

    Hi Kate, I still can not wrap my head around this pattern. I looked back and for the basic twill you did under 2 over 2. This is over 1 under 2.. I guess I am having trouble with the second row back. Should it be off or on the same wrap thread? Meaning two on the first row and two on the second or will it be offset? Does that make sense. 😩

      It is hard, I like to look at the pattern away from the side and figure out what I want the thread to do. Do if you just made your middle row, then your return row should mirror the other side of the middle. So once you have figured out which warps your two over goes, then slowly think through each warp all the way back to the end thread (one under, two over, etc.) With that in mind look at the very last warp thread, does the weft end over it or under it? to start the new row, do the opposite of what the weft ended one, then start that pattern that you figured out. So maybe you’ll need to go under one over one and then start the over two under one. I hope this helps.
