Description of Contents:

“A procedure for first laying out the overshot design on graph paper, then preparing a profile draft from which the threading draft is derived. The three component parts of most overshot designs – border, table, and connecting units – are studied separately. The basic procedures for creating symmetrical and non-symmetrical designs are discussed. About 20 draw-downs of overshot patterns are included as examples, and there are threading drafts for 13 original patterns. ”  –Handweaving : An Annotated Bibliography by Isabel Bushmann
