Huck Lace Weaving: bl-lacewkshp

“Many weeks (actually months) ago I took a workshop exploring huck lace with a local instructor at our guild. The participants in the workshop graciously gave me permission to share some pictures of their work and I was to have posted it all a long time ago. The workshop was in September, and I learned a great deal about working with and designing in huck. My warp is the nice bright pink one (16/2 cotton). The rust coloured warp is also 16/2 cotton and the others are 16/2 linen.

As a result of this workshop, I am now working with huck lace to make napkins and placemats (and when these are done, I will share some pictures). They are made of 16/2 orlon in purple. I have many cones of this stuff, so might tie on if time and interest permit.

I hope you enjoy the pictures.”

Weaving Drafts – Huck draft: blma-babyhuck

I’ve used this weaving draft for baby blankets and it makes nice, thermal-type blankets. It didn’t work well with Peaches & Cream yarn I think because my sett was too wide at 6 epi. I often use two colors or one color plus white, alternating them in the blocks because that creates nice effects in the basket weave blocks. The huck is a 3-thread huck.

An alternate method of threading Huck is to change the shaft order.

  • Shaft 1 becomes Shaft 2
  • Shaft 2 becomes Shaft 3
  • Shaft 3 becomes Shaft 4
  • Shaft 4 becomes Shaft 1
  • The ground tabby is then woven on 1 and 2
  • The pattern is woven on shafts 3 and 4
