about

Weave•Knit•Wear dispels the myth that you need expensive equipment, a large space, or special threads to weave. The directions for all 30 projects, from the narrowest boa to a 55” wide serape, are tailored to the most basic equipment—the 20” wide rigid-heddle loom—making it affordable, portable, and intimate. Judith Shangold’s designs turn what might seem to be the limitations of this loom into a strength. She pairs simple shapes that reflect the ease of current fashion, and require little cutting and sewing, with the long tradition of ethnic garments created from narrow strips of handwoven fabric. The book offers guidance on the basics of weaving and the minimal hand sewing and knitting techniques used, as well as primers on choosing yarns, designing warps, planning garments, finishing the fabric, making Weave•Knit•Wear a resource that aids in planning and constructing one-of-a-kind woven or woven-and-knit projects.

Judith Shangold started her fiber career as a weaver then went on to develop pattern lines for knitters and distribute Manos del Uruguay yarns. She lives in Lexington, Massachusetts. Alexis Xenakis is a photographer and the publisher for Knitter's Magazine and XRX Books. He lives in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
