Want more pattern and texture in your life? Deflected doubleweave (DDW) can be combined with traditional doubleweave to create layers, pockets, and connections all in the same piece. Use this technique to weave dramatic scarves, shawls, and cowls with a variety of fibers and colorways.
In this workshop, instructor Janney Simpson demonstrates how to use 8-shaft table and floor looms to weave DDW with several variations. Janney’s clever method uses a skeleton tie-up, allowing you to change layers at will without retying your treadles.
Her approach to weaving this dynamic structure delivers limitless design options.
As you watch, you’ll:
- Review how the deflected doubleweave structure works
- Compare conventional and skeleton tie-up options
- Learn how to use table and floor looms to weave DDW
- Explore ways to add pockets and layers to your designs
- Develop your DDW skills with the included gamp sampler pattern
Weave stunning fabrics on your table or floor loom using fewer shafts and treadles than you might expect. The included workbook makes it easy to follow along, and soon you’ll have all the tools you need to weave astounding deflected doubleweave fabrics. Get started exploring this exciting structure with instructor Janney Simpson!
- Weavers should be able to warp a loom and read a draft
Included in the Course:
- 82 minutes of detailed instructional video
- Course workbook for reference
- DDW gamp sampler pattern
- Skeleton tie-up for countermarch looms**
Materials and Equipment:
- For the video, you'll want a printed copy of the provided workbook.
- To weave the DDW sampler, you’ll need an 8-shaft floor or table loom, 12 or 15 dent reed, 2 shuttles, 2–3 bobbins, tape measure, T-pins, weights for broken ends, and scissors. Floor loom weavers will need 24 treadle cords or pins for their tie-up.
**Note: In this course, Janney weaves on a jack loom with a skeleton tie-up to eliminate the necessity of retying her treadles. We’ve added a skeleton tie-up for countermarch-loom weavers that also allows you to follow along without retying.
“Excellent dive into DDW!!! Janney presents in a clear and relaxing style. Very enjoyable to watch and learn.”

Block Doubleweave on 8 Shafts
Doubleweave is a fascinating and versatile structure. While weaving with four shafts lets you experiment with doubleweave in many different ways, using eight (or more) shafts expands your possibilities exponentially.(3) 5.0 average rating
