Fifty-three projects range from simple to complex weaves. Directions, patterns, and tips are provided for the plain weave, twill, point twill, rosepath, overshot, taqueté, and samitum. It also features Coptic taqueté and samitum re-creations and patterns from the Tunic of Tutankhamun.

This is the definitive work on weft-faced pattern weaves and is a must-have reference and resource guide for weavers and crafters alike.”
