A comprehensive guide to every aspect of weaving from start to finish.From design concept to choice of materials, draft and tie-up to completed weave, understand the ins and outs of modern handweaving, guided by experts in the craft. Arianna Funk and Miriam Parkman are professional weavers, textile artists, and teachers, and with the help of sketching prompts to spark creativity and sample weaving drafts, they explore the process of developing a weave from beginning to end-"whether you want a sturdy, utilitarian textile or a decorative hanging for the wall, oranything in between-"and give all weavers the tools and the confidence to weave their way.
- 16 different sample projects, featuring techniques including knotted rya, waffle weave, and more
- Examples from each of the authors, showing how the same basic pattern guidelines might turn out when worked by different weavers
- Plus tips, tricks, analysis of the process of designing a weave, explanations for dyeing your own yarn, and so much more!

Born and raised in Mystic, Connecticut,Arianna Funk moved to Sweden right after earning her Master's in Visual Culture at NYU in 2011. She lives in Stockholm with her sons, Axel and Bror, and her partner Erik. When not weaving, she can be found cycling around the city, sailing their wooden boat, and busy experimenting in the kitchen. She's a small business owner, with a focus on handwoven goods and writing weaving drafts and she also designs patterns for Gist Yarn and Vavmagasinet, the Scandinavian Weaving Magazine.

Miriam Parkman is originally from a small town in Northern Sweden but nowadays is based in Stockholm. She studied weaving and needlework at Handarbetets Vanner, Friends of Handicraft School 2013-2016. And after graduating spent three months as a design intern at MZ Fairtrade in Oaxaca, Mexico. She runs her company as a freelance textile artist, handweaver, designer, author, content creator, and (sometimes) a vintage stylist. As a textile designer and handweaver, she sees the warp as her paper and the weft as her brush and paint.
