Book Description

Finally, an easy explanation of crackle weave!

Susan Kesler-Simpson explains crackle weave simply by breaking down the weave structure into its basic parts. Learn how these parts work together to create the weave structure, so that you can use any pattern, or create your own.

The areas of separating threads give crackle weave its appearance of cracking pottery, and once you see how the structure works, there is so much you can do with it! Crackle weave is a block weave structure made up of four or more threading blocks that are based on the twill structure. These blocks can be enlarged, reduced, or change location. Crackle weave has many options for adding colours through the warp, primary threads, or secondary threads.

Learning is not complete without practice, so there are 25 patterns to try, including shawls, scarves, rugs, blankets, towels, and table runners. Some are woven in the traditional crackle method while others introduce weaving crackle as overshot, summer/winter, and more. Start your exploration of crackle weave today!
