This is an informal image of one of my stock colorways, November, woven in a 2/2 twill hit-or-miss pattern. I picked the name because the colors remind me of the subtle richness of the woods after the last leaf has fallen for the year, except for the oaks and beeches. The world is full of moss, bark, pine needles both green and brown, mist, fog, and blue sky.
November is primarily men’s clothing.
“Hit or miss” is the traditional name given to a pattern that has no planning apart from the order in which the weft fibers (horizontal) are picked up out of the basket.
This sample is woven from recycled t shirt hems and sleeve bands, with a number of trouser hems and polo shirt bands added. I sew segments, which run from 12″ to 50″ individually, into 10-yard lengths and weave. The colors fall where they may. This ruglet was too small to sell, so I will take it apart and use the fiber to make a bigger version, when I have enough material on hand. It takes approximately 10# of raw (processed) fiber to make a 2′ x 3′ rug, in this weave structure. (It takes a bit more than that in pre-processed clothing.)
