Handwoven Issue 180 (May/June 2016)
In this issue of Handwoven, devoted to the contrast between light and dark, you'll find 9 stunning handweaving patterns that prove when it comes to color, sometimes less is more. Katie Allen shows how mixing light and dark with unexpected yarns makes a huck lace like you've never seen before, while Ruth Salmons shows how handsome black and white combined with warp- and weft-faced blocks can be.
Articles in this issue by Deb Essen and Tom Knisely will teach some great lessons on color, value, and contrast and help you design better Handwoven cloth. In the Idea Gallery, Margaret Cherre and Anna Zinsmeister show us low-tech and high-tech ways to weave striking images in black and white. This issue also celebrates the launch of a new column: The Draft, wherein Madelyn van der Hoogt will present an in-depth look at the structure of one project in each issue, giving you more tools to design our own projects. In this issue Madelyn explains tied overshot.
Whether you want to better understand value and how to use color contrast to create dramatic effects, or you just want to weave something spectacular to go with any wardrobe or decor, the May/June issue of Handwoven has something for you.
