A Crackle Weave Companion

Author: Lucy M. Brusic

ISBN: 1933794569
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Crafts & Hobbies

A Crackle Weave Companion is a new comprehensive guide to the Crackle weave and its literature. Lucy Brusic brings together in one volume more than 100 four-shaft Crackle patterns previously published in the books of Marguerite Davison, Mary Snyder, and Mary Atwater. Using an easy-to-follow letter transcription system, A Crackle Weave Companion updates the older patterns and shows how they can be adapted to wider or narrower warps. Crackle weave is a system of small twill blocks. Traditional Crackle creates a sturdy fabric with short floats. However, many untraditional design ideas and color mixing experiments are also possible with this weave structure. Anyone who can read a four-shaft draft and thread a loom can use this book. This book is designed to help the person who does not know much about Crackle become more proficient in the weave, but it is also designed to be an inspiration to all weavers, Crackle and otherwise, who want to understand how this structure works.
