Woven Pattern – If you want to be a weaver you have to love patterns! It’s the essence of the craft. Do you agree?

Mastering and manipulating weave pattern 👩🏼‍🏫structures are one of my goals.

Mind you at this stage of my experience I’m more like a two-year-old with a 🖍crayon. But I am not worried about embarrassing 🫢myself. I have always been a fearless creative. Like everything I’ve ever explored, and the list is long, I will research 📝, construct and deconstruct the 🧐😋 yin-yang out of it. And make lots of mistakes!! Oh, the messes I will make.

There are a lot of pattern resources ‘recipes’ weavers can follow and like all skills, it’s important to know the basics. I definitely find it very 🤓satisfying to see the completed results🧣even if it’s a simple plain weave. 🫣But I do like to do a little wabi-sabi. At least a little at the start of a project doesn’t hurt?😉

➿Are you an experimental weaver? ✔️Or prefer to stick to the tried and true?
