Swedish Weaving Patterns - Vintage Crafts and More

The Swedish Weaving patterns I’m sharing today are from Modern Trends, a 1954 Coats & Clark booklet. It includes patterns for  Hairpin Lace, Crochet and these Swedish Weaving designs for an Apron, Towels and Place Mats.

The designs are all worked on Huck Toweling or Monk’s Aida Cloth.

To embroidery the designs, skeins of Six Strand Embroidery Floss or Pearl Cotton can be used with good results.

Most huck towels have vertical loops on one side and horizontal loops on the other; each set of directions states on which side the design is to be worked.

Cut threads into 30-inch lengths. When beginning weaving, leave 3 inches of thread free. When weaving is completed weave back through design for 1 inch, or equivalent. Finish off 3-inch length in same manner.

When starting new thread in center of row, begin weaving 1 inch before end of previous thread. When article has been completed, press well on wrong side.
