Handwoven Laces

by Donna Muller

1991

"The only book devoted to this family of weave structures! Traditionally, lace weaves have been used for fine linens, and most recently in the fashion and art fabric worlds. While "true" laces are laboriously made with needles or bobbins, the handweaver can use a loom to quickly produce lovely, lacy fabrics. The simplest weaves produce overall patterns. With the more complicated varieties, a weaver can design figures, initials, and geometric patterns into the cloth.

Handwoven Laces has explicit instructions for identifying and understanding the various lace structures and in-depth chapters that explain how to use traditional patterns and create original ones. Beginning with the most basic interlacements, master weaver Donna Muller shows you how to develop lace structures in creative, logical ways. She begins with the most basic of lacy effects, and shows how other structures can be discovered through progressive, minor changes in threading and treadling. Woven samples, drafts and diagrams clearly illustrate the principles behind the lace weaves. Suitable for self-study or class use, this book offers both new and experienced weavers a sense of mastery and a wealth of new ideas."

This is the best book I have seen on lace weaving. Not only are the drafts wonderful but the information on how to design your own is invaluable.

Great introduction on how the threads interact with each other and why it becomes the lace you weave after it's off the loom. A great go to book for weavers with both experience and beginners.
