Triangle Weaving is one of those unique techniques that is
so versatile, and can be so colorful,
so full of textures and embellishments that will not slide through a traditional harness loom. The combo of yarns, beads, ribbons, fringes, buttons, or ornaments that can be used is refreshing! Multi triangles can be combined into many shapes such as diamonds, or larger triangles. Use for throws, or sofa, table and window covers.
Enclose edges for pillows and totes. Best of all, wrap 'round you and wear them.
My tri-throws can be in 3 sizes and are
the only items I do that are not all natural fibers.
However, in the wools, I do use my handspun yarns, (provided by the ewes: Sprinkles, Swee'Pea, & Oreo), and mix these in with many novelty textures, boucles, nubs, eyelash yarns and other ornamental objects. They are thickly textured and warm. Even a small scarf will insulate the neck of a blazer and be an eye-catching accent..
The largest triangle is done on a 7 ft.wide triangle (shawl), the smallest is done on a 54 in. wide triangle (scarf),
and midsize starts with the 7 ft. width and stops half way down where the sliding/repeating triangle motion changes to traditional back and forth weaving. All are finger-picked by hand.
A note for Do-It-Yourselfers:
Triangle Weaving is a fun technique that's great for mixing in those odd novelty
yarns or using up leftovers from other projects. If you are a "yarn person"
who may be interested in learning this technique, see the Classes
Page for more info and many pics from the workshops. In these weavings, any
yarn or color can be added or subtracted at any point, and odd textures or alternative
weaves mixed in. This makes it ideal for beginners without any prior experience.
There are no mistakes! To me, this embodies the essence of weaving: blending
many separate parts into a unified whole. And it always turns out great!
