Double Weave Shawl

This doll-sized shawl was woven as a double weave tube (5" wide, on-loom) based on the design in "The Magic of DoubleWeave" called "It's an 'L' of a shawl" by David Xenakis and Ruth Morrison.

Essentially it is a woven tube that has been fulled and cut at a 45 degree angle. The trick is that the angle is rotated by 90 degrees at the center of the shawl, to make an 'L'. (Come to the Wabash Weavers' guild meeting on Friday and I'll show you--visuals are very helpful for this one...but the book has good photos, if you can't join us at the meeting!)

My daughter's baby doll played the model for the finished shawl. :)
