Let’s finish strong in our Overshot 101 series and talk about weaving overshot! Even though it looks complicated, the actual process of creating overshot is completely manageable! You can do it!
In episode 72, I’m arming you with all the core concepts you need to understand how to weave overshot. Use 2 different wefts – one for the background and one for the pattern. After that, it’s really just a matter of wrangling shuttles! No sweat!
I can’t wait to see what fabulous overshot fabric you create next! Enjoy!

Tips for Success – I found a lovely article from Handwoven Magazine (such a great resource!) that includes overshot tips from Pattie Graver. Here’s the beauty of weaving. While I like to keep things basic and easy, there is an entire world dedicated to the technical pieces of the process and it’s important to showcase that side, too! You’ll find some of Pattie’s tips dive into very specific practices, which my really analytical readers will definitely appreciate! Check out her blog post right here.
