Foot Stool Wool Double Cloth

Foot Stool
Wool Double Cloth

Making this up was a bit trickier than I thought it was going to be.  Mostly due to the weight of the cloth.  A lesson learned; and certainly, if I was to do this again, then I would use a finer gauge yarn, or make a single cloth.  So many options.  Too much of my HNC work to get through to allow myself to get distracted by new plans.

I designed the fabric to have a strong block of colour running  down the centre, with more texture and less defined colours to each side of it.  On reflection,  the contrast could have been stronger, the panel is not as well defined as I thought it would be, perhaps I should have used less of the grey in the centre panel ?

However, it is fantastic to finally make something useful….  almost everything I have woven to date has been “a sample”.

Final Collection Stool Fabric Development

This next image shows the 2 samples I worked up after my initial drawings and before my design development.

What is very clear from these initial samples is just how much my weaving has improved in the last month or so.  Not least because I finally got the double cloth exchange method into my brain.  Something I have been battling with for some time now.
