We are fortunate that Ing-Marie Frid has chosen to spend so many hours of her time analyzing these ornate and beautiful traditional bands from Leksand in order to produce this incredible catalog of traditional patterns from this town.
Volume 1: Many of the bands have either 25 or 30 pattern threads, but the book offers a broad selection of bands with fewer pattern threads, as well.
Volume 2: These bands range from 13–49 pattern threads. This time the bands analyzed were mostly small pieces and long bands in which every single one has many different patterns, in other words very "heavily patterned" bands. There are also some other bands included which have not been published previously.
Ing-Marie has chosen to produce these volumes with a spiral binding so the owner is able to open the book flat to copy any page for his or her own use. This way one can easily enlarge sections to more clearly see these complicated patterns. Each pattern includes a project drawdown and a photo of the woven band. There is an immense amount of information in these pages.
We are pleased to offer these two volumes both individually and, at a slight discount, as a set.
