Shaping hack [10]

Why a shaping ‘hack’ — well this method of ‘shaping’ is simpler than following a set pattern to create your rounded or curved shapes. It is a less formal way for getting some movement into your weaving without the complication of counting threads. It will mean getting interesting results even in your earliest efforts. Often beginners lose heart quickly if they are unable to get their heads around numbers and charts, so this informal method will give satisfaction early on in your weaving experience leaving you free to apply your inspiration and imagination. The secret lies in using your weaving comb to gently shape woven areas — some will become looser than others in order to remain in a curve.
