Project 9 Woven structures_Curved wefts

I had some trouble with this technique in the beginning. I had trouble creating shapes that I liked. I think the problem was that I kept pulling too hard on the weft. So I had to start over again a couple of times.

I started with a couple of rows of purple yarn. I then started building up shapes with yarn and hemp string. I accidentally created opening between the shapes, but I actually really like it.

Because I really like the openings that I had created at the beginning of the sample, I decided to leave a few more openings, but this time on purpose.

I ended with a couple of rows of pink and blue yarn.

Even though a had some with this sample in the beginning, I am quite pleased with the end result. I like the movement in the sample.
