Crochet shawl laid out

Darlene alternates woven and crochet Tri's
into three rows for a warm but lacy shawl.

Oragami Shawl

Her Oragami shawl is formed with 15 Tri's in three rows.
Her subtle but masterful use of color is stunning.
Each tri is outlined and joined with crochet.

Andi's Creations

Andi joined three -three foot Tri's as shown.

The piece was then edged with crochet.

The two top points were folded down and joined to the bottom.

Notice how well the plaid lines up when the three Tri's are joined.
Great placement of the strongest color to accent the neckline.

 Sunset is a dyed pattern

Wind your yarn into a skien the length of your hypotenuse.
Divide it into three or four sections on each side of the hypotenuse center.
The larger the weaving the more colors you can use.
Dye the two outside sections the same color.
Do the same to the next two sections.
Dye the center section.
The two halfs must match

When you weave you have to make sure the color sequence is the same on every row. One sequence per row.
A beautifully blended color weave is produced.

For members of Triloom @ yahoogroups.com you can find more detailed instructions in the file section of the group page.

Sandra's Stitches

Swedish Weaving, also called Huck Embroidery is a very old needle work technique that became popular again in the 1930's and 40's.

Sandra adds a new twist
by using it on hand weavings.

It is a beautiful embellishment for Tri Weavings.

  learn more about Swedish Weaving.

Sandra used the same purple yarn

 she wove with to add a textured design on this poncho.
