One of my favourite weaving techniques is an old Scandinavian technique known as krokbragd. In the past this was often used for making bed covers, or wall hangings. The process is more time consuming than many other weaving techniques, as you’ll have to go over each “row” multiple times with different yarn in order to bring out the pattern. This piling up of yarn also creates a very thick and sturdy fabric.

Traditionally krokbragd is often woven with a wide variety of colours, often scrap yarn. I have often made my weaving monochrome with just two colour variation, to give a more calm and minimal look and feel. This bag is woven with Icelandic wool, in black and white on a cotton warp.
