Hearts – February Calendar Sample

March 10, 2010

A little late for Valentine’s day, but here is the February sample, extra hearts are, I hope, always welcome in the world.  This uses the old Swedish Snowflake pattern threading from the book 200 Patterns for Multiple Harness Looms: 5 to 12 Harness Patterns for Handweavers, by Russell E.  Groff  (and where it was from before  I am not sure).   Many people have varied this threading and tredling and it has been published in more recent magazines with many variations including hearts.

February Hearts, Advancing Twill Weave adapted by Tanis Smythe from a Kim Marie Bunke Design

Warp : Cansew 00/3 mercerized cotton sewing thread
Colour: Red, scarlet and pink, threaded randomly
Sett: 40 epi; Reed: 10; Sley: 4 ends/dent

    Oh we can all use extra hearts no matter the time of year, but that certainly is perfect for a Feb showcase. Lovely pattern, lovely choice of color. Thank you for always including the draft. It is much appreciated!
