Learning Tapestry and Rug Weaving Techniques
Here is the result of the past week I spent learning tapestry and rug weaving techniques. It still needs "finishing" at the top and bottom, but I wanted to share it with you. Rug weaving is slow going. I am now even more impressed with beautifully handwoven rugs.
It was fun to learn these techniques on the four harness loom. The fringe takes a long time to do, but it is super easy and relaxing. I cannot imagine making a whole rug out of fringe.
My favorite part is this section even though there were a lot of really cool parts. I used carpet warp for the warp and Cascade 220 for the weft. Using worsted knitting yarn was a bit more stretchy than ideal, but it turned out great in the end.
If you haven't tried rug and tapestry weaving yet, I highly recommend it!
