Patterns Included in the Collection:
Napkins with Tracking by Margaret Gaynes
Digital Pattern featured in Handwoven, November/December 1991
Tracking produces the delicate twill-like pattern in these napkins. I consider tracking a magical gift from the weaving gods, so I don’t try to discourage it. I like having my fabrics look much more complex than they actually are.
Keep it Simple Towels by Mary Ann Geers
Digital Pattern featured in Handwoven, Summer 1985
These lovely towels are easy to weave and use inexpensive materials. Put on a long warp so you can make towels for your own kitchen as well as some for gifts.
With a white warp, you can weave each towel in a different weft color to match many different kitchen decors (white on white is wonderful, too!). The towels dry dishes well (a must!), do not need ironing (honest!), and the simple checked design suits every kitchen.
Bamboo Shawl by Robin Lynde
Digital Pattern featured in Handwoven, November/December 2006
When the weather gets cooler, you’ll love its wrap-around warmth of this exquisite shawl. Using a familiar weave structure like shadow weave with a new yarn can add excitement to any project. Bambu 7 is a multistrand 100% bamboo yarn comparable in size to 5/2 pearl cotton. It has a wonderfully soft and drapable hand, comes in over 100 colors, and is just the right weight for a shawl.
Huck Lace and Tencel Scarf by Kristen Kelley
Digital Pattern featured in Handwoven, March/April 2008
Weaving scarves in Tencel is wonderful due to its' eco-friendly nature—but also because fabrics woven in Tencel are easy to care for, and the yarn takes dye beautifully. Weaving an entire project in a single color can be a little intimidating, but the sheen and depth of color in Tencel will make this scarf a n absolute joy to weave.
Viking Draft for Towels by Gunnel Oresjo
Digital Pattern featured in Handwoven, September/October 2009
These towels are the result of a towel exchange held in 2008 by the Northern Colorado Weavers Guild. Dive into an opportunity to use a draft from the Viking era (analyzed by Agnes Geijer; see Resources). Ever wonder how weavers in the tenth century managed to weave this type of twill on the relatively primitive warp-weighted looms of that era? This project pays respect to the weavers of the past!

- Great results on a 4-shaft loom
- All of these projects can be done on a 4-shaft loom. I am a new weaver, and made the huck lace and tencel scarf for my fourth project on a table loom, and wove the "Keep it simple" dish towels on a floor loom for my fifth weaving project. Both patterns were easy to follow, and I am thrilled with the results. (Posted on 1/12/2016)
- Type of loom
- Other reviewer made same comment. No loom information available. How am I to know if I can weave these projects if the type of loom isn't made available? This is a common problem with Handwoven and Interweave. So I don't buy. (Posted on 11/9/2015)
- Not enough info
- The description shown on interweave does not include what kind of loom are suitable for these beginner patterns (Posted on 8/5/2015)
