Blue Hour Tapestry
Designed by Petra Marciniak
This playful tapestry uses a technique called meet and separate to weave an abstract atmosphere of bold shapes and colors. The design is sketched directly onto the warp threads before weaving, creating a piece that is hand-drawn and one-of-a-kind. This pattern is recommended for beginner and intermediate tapestry weavers who have completed a couple of projects and have a knowledge of the fundamental techniques. Order a kit.
Skill level: Beginner
Gist is generous with free tapestry patterns, and this one is perfect for working on curved shapes. I recommend it highly. I'm using my wonderful Array yarns for the pattern and loving the process.
The Blue Hour free tapestry design by Petra Marciniak was a wonderful way for me to start a weave every day in April Challenge. It is much larger than my normal “tiny tapestries”, but helped me to hone my meet and separate skills as well as practice a little patience because there was no way I could finish it in just a couple days. My version of the Blue Hour turned out beautiful and I am very grateful to Petra and Gist Yarn for giving me the opportunity to create it.
