Fiber: 8/2 tencel
Reed/Sett: 8-dent/32 epi
This project was a further development on the doubleweave baby blanket, and one that finally delivered on the weaving porn on the front of Jennifer Moore's excellent Doubleweave book. My plan was to use her table runner pattern and weave a shawl in 8/2 tencel.
For my colours I chose a lustrous bronze as my base, with rainbow colours as my contrast blocks. The plan was to mirror the pattern throughout the shawl.
I used a temple to maintain my selvedges because draw-in without the temple causes by warp threads to snap. With the temple, the weaving was very straightforward on the 8-shaft Louet Jane table loom. The shawl was finished with twisted tassels, and after wet finishing (hand wash and dry flat) the finished shawl (exclusive of tassels) measured 23.5" x 72.5".
