Description

This wonderful scarf pattern came about when we were creating S7E3 which was all about Monk’s Belt. While I was researching patterns that used a Monk’s Belt threading and treadling I came across this wonderful pattern in “The Virginia West Swatch Book” which was published in 1985. This book is a treasure…..it is one of those books from that era where handwoven samples are included. She called the pattern Basket Squares. Mavis MacMillan is a weaver on my Dream Team and she happened to be in the studio when I was poking through it…..I said “Hey Mavis, do you want to weave this?”……and the rest is history :)…..Thank you Virginia and thank you Mavis.
