TAQUETE is a weft-faced compound tabby weave. It is also referred to as weft-faced summer and winter, weft-faced polychrome summer and winter (without tabby) and weft-faced two-tie unit weave. This weave lends its self to weaving with thick or thin fibers and from delicate bookmarks to thick rugs to clothing. The best patterns are suited for bold, contrasting colors and can be used for 4, 8 or unlimited shafts. Linda's examples below. Here color choices made her items extra great!
