Recently, I made some new products in 1" widths and had difficulty adjusting my designer's mind to this narrower width. I was using the same yarn but had only half as many threads to design with. Wow! At first I was frustrated, but then, after a few tries, I started creating designs which I really liked.
I thought I'd share some of these with you here. Each pattern draft is shown below the photo. Consider the top row of the draft to be heddled warps and the bottom row to be open warps.
If you use any of them, please send me a message with a photo as I really enjoy seeing how my designs inspire other band weavers. And if you like this post, please share it with others in your network on Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, etc.
(Note: The yarn I'm using for these is Omega Sinfonia, a sport weight yarn which is slightly thicker than a #3 crochet cotton. If you use a finer yarn, your woven band will be narrower. Or, if you use a heavier weight yarn, your band will be wider than 1".)
