Earlier this week, I was reflecting a little on how weaving a technique on a regular straight warp can change a lot when woven on a circular warp. In today’s post, I tried using the hem stitch on a circular weave and I really like the design it made. I plan to keep experimenting with this little weave and see what else I could make with the hem stitch. If you want to also try this, here are the steps I followed:
step 2| once you have the number of rows you like, take your yarn thread and cross over the front of a grouping of warp threads. I brought my thread over the front of 6 warp strings.
step 3| from around the front of the warp threads, pull the yarn around the back and across the front again. Pulling the string tight so it makes a grouping of the warp threads.
step 5| pull tight to secure the thread
The final weave looks like a flower and you can see how the warp threads group together. As I said I’m going to keep playing around with this and see what else can be done. I’ll have to share my progress in a later post…I’m thinking this might need some color.
If you’re wondering how to try your own circular weaving, I have a lot of posts on that here.
