Learning how to weave narrow patterned bands on an inkle loom allowed Kate Davies to reflect upon the interconnections between different cultures and practices of making across the global north and south, and also helped her to approach the design process in a new way. The 15 creative and colourful projects in this book are the result of such reflections.
Alongside 11 patterns for hand-knitting – produced in Kate’s signature clear style, across an inclusive size range – are a selection of four simple projects to weave on an inkle loom. This fresh, spirited, and colourful collection reveals the far-reaching creative potential of approaching design with a beginner’s mind and asking oneself, what if? Might you be inspired by some inklings of your own?
