Needlework is not really my forte, but I wanted to give huck weaving a go so I finally did for this towel.



This tutorial got me interested and this was very helpful too. I just winged the pattern.



The sides of the towel are the selvedges of the fabric. I hemmed the top and frayed the bottom. There're rows of machine stitching between the fraying and design so it won't come undone.


I really like how the pattern doesn't go through to the other side and there are no knots to contend with! Yay! Mistakes are easy to undo too. That made me happy  Smiley  It took  f o r e v e r, but I had a new series to watch so it was cool. Overall it was a pretty fun project. This type of needlework I may come back to willingly!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Gorgeous! I LOVE huck weaving! I get most of my patterns from vintage Workbasket Magazines, which is where I discovered it, or I make my own. Love the single color - very striking.

I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.

You did a lovely job!  I've done a little swedish weave, which is similar, so I know that it takes a surprising amount of time to do the stitching.  I used to think -- hey, the fabric is already there, so it'll be quick to just add some colorful lines.  I was so wrong.  So kudos to you for not quitting half way through.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

Thank you for such nice comments, everyone!

I was really surprised it took so long!
I didn't know there was a difference between huck weaving/embroidery, Swedish weaving/embroidery, Scandinavian weaving/embroidery, Norwegian weaving/embroidery, any-other-names-out-there weaving/embroidery. It looked like the names were interchangeable but I could only find directions on huck weaving. I didn't look too hard, though. Must research more!

I'm not an embroiderer, so I don't know anything about huck weaving, but this sure is beautiful looking.
