Double Weave Shawl, by Judy Bool

My Shawl is from The Best of Weavers - the Magic of Double-Weave. It is Unconventional Double-Weave, in 3-blocks, on 8 shafts. One layer is red, the other blue. The yarn is my favourite - 2/28 70% Alpaca & 30% Silk. Alpaca/silk has a wonderful lustre and is so easy to weave.

I thoroughly enjoyed weaving this draft and I know it will be the basis for many more.
