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!

Scarf/Shawl above is a half-triangle, a longer and deeper scarf without the width and deeper
fabric of a fullsize shawl. The red/black/charcoal has eye-catching colors and lots of fringe & nubby textures.

Uses . . .

Use decorative pins to fasten a scarf as a belt. Wrap around you on chilly days nights, or throw on a chair or settee.

Below is a sampler of combo color patterns and textures.















   Tabby patterns, the traditional over/under yarns in frame weaving, are simple and often toneless. But the technique can be altered.
   Rather than one continuous yarn or woven pattern in the shawl at left, sections show a varied weave. Shading moves through the weave in areas of deeper concentration, or not.
























To order a triangle weave of your choice, select basic colors, size, and any additional textures
or shades to be included. You may refer to the commission info for notes on color, fiber, shipping, etc, but Triangle Weaves are a class of their own, so contact me about your prefernces.
