Contemporary Weaving Patterns || Margo Selby

Once again, this is a Quarto package and therefore aimed more at the beginner or intermediate end of the market than the professionals who often benefit from Black’s list. And, again, I don’t mean that as a criticism.

Basically it’s a recipe book for the weaver, with the patterns shown two-per-page along with accompanying pattern grids. I don’t know anything about weaving, but I assume this is all you need. Introductory sections cover yarns, textures and techniques, all fairly briefly.

From the layout, I’m assuming that this is aimed at those who have a basic practical knowledge and are looking for design ideas – much as you’d expect from a book of knitting patterns. There’s plenty here to work from and with, and the whole thing looks well thought-out and presented.
