Article: Make Like Weavers Do: Leno!

“Life is busy. Sometimes, we just want plain knitting but we don’t necessarily want a plain sweater! There are many ways to gussy up our garments after the knitting is done, and in this tutorial we’ll explore adding the look of leno to our fabric. Leno is a weaving technique used to create a lacy yet stable fabric. Vertical warp threads are twisted around each other before the horizontal weft is introduced. Imagine marrying knit cables and lace, and you get an idea of what woven leno fabric looks like!”
