Weave and sew pair of decorative pillows by Alexandra Forby of Daughter Handwovens! Using our Italian Cotton/Linen Weaving Yarn, Alex created a gradient pattern by alternating warp and weft colors.

Alex writes, "For the warping order, I started with about 60 strands of the yellow linen (or color A) and then intermittently started blending in the grey threads (or color B) until at the opposite end I had about 60 strands of the grey thread. Once on the loom I tweaked this a bit further and moved some strands around until I felt it looked like a fluid gradient between the two colors. Then, my weft picks essentially mirrored the warp. I started with about 20" of yellow (color A) so the backside of the pillow would be two solid panels of grey and yellow. Then I began to pick until I matched the warp threads, making perfect squares as I worked up and across the warp threads. Finally, I finished with another 20" of grey to complete the other backside panel."
