    This coverlet in Plattväv (a monksbelt variation) has been a favorite in our classes. We have adapted it from a traditional bed curtain woven in Ytterboda, in Dalarna Sweden, near the Sätergläntan school where Becky studied. Purchase this warp all ready to beam onto your loom at home. No need to worry about the math, simply choose your colors and let us do the rest.
