The humble pick-up stick has amazing patterning power. With it you can create a third shed that allows you to break the normal over/under configuration. This reversible runner, will transform you into a pick-up artist by allowing you to master warp and weft floats and learn how and when to combine them. Along the way learn the art of hemstitchinga weaver's favorite finish worked right on the loom. Included are Yarnworker's signature step-by-step photos and instructions as well as invaluable tips on weaving well. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 32" 63/4" with 1" fringe
